SUMMER DEVICE TAKE HOME PLANS

Great News!
Wawasee students will be keeping their devices over the summer months. Our goal is to encourage and
facilitate continuous learning throughout the summer.

Partnering with Community Libraries:
Wawasee is partnering with local community libraries to inform students how to obtain access to eBooks for
summer reading. Each Wawasee student is eligible for a free Evergreen card. Representatives from
community libraries will work with schools to help students understand how to obtain a library card and check
out eBooks through the community library systems. Wawasee school library eBooks will also be available for
check out over the summer months.

Summer Weekly School Visit Times:
To help support the summer take home program, there will be an open evening, weekly at each community’s
school library. In Syracuse, it will be at Wawasee High School. Parents and/or their students will be able to
come to any of the open sites to check out books and get help with their computer devices or have them
repaired if necessary. A schedule for each school will be posted on each school's website and our
corporation’s website.

Paid Insurance:
The Wawasee Community School Corporation will be providing insurance for all devices beginning the month
of June. If parents are concerned about having the devices at home this summer, they can contact their
building principal during regular school hours.

Relocation:
For students who are leaving our school district during the summer, they must return the device, charger, and
case to the WCSC Central Office or Wawasee High School Technology Department. Failure to return a device
will result in turning over the full amount of the device and case to collections and/or small claims.
Wawasee Community Schools is excited to help provide this opportunity for our students and look forward to
this new transition in education! If you have questions, please feel free to contact your school office or Dee
Blair, Technology Secretary, at 574-457-3147, ext. 2924 or dblair@wawasee.k12.in.us

NOTICE TO FUTURE 4th, 5th AND 6th GRADE PARENTS:
We are collecting the 4th and 5th grade ASUS Flip books at the end of the year and replacing them with Dell
Chromebooks for next year. The new Dell’s will be distributed as soon as the new cases arrive in June. Third
grade students will be turning in their iPads and receiving the returned chromebooks from this year’s seniors.
Future 5th and 6th grade students will be able to pick up their new computers from the high school tech office
when they are ready to be distributed in June. Parents will be notified when they are available.
