All seniors must return the Dell Latitude laptop, charger, and pen clean and in good condition at the latest by 11 am on Friday, May 31. Laptops can be returned at the I.T. office, 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday. Promptly returning the devices helps us get them ready for the incoming freshmen who will be starting summer school.  Unfortunately, there is no option to purchase the device this year. Please remove any stickers that you have put on the device (leave the serial number and Windows stickers). If the laptop has been damaged, please have it repaired before turning it in! There is a $150 fee for accidental damage, payable via PushCoin. Pens are available in the I.T. office for $30 via PushCoin, and chargers for $20.
