Student Laptop Distribution


GMSD will deploy student laptops for students in grades 9-12 during the week of July 23rd. To accommodate families’ work schedules, we have scheduled device orientation and deployment during evening hours. See below for the specific date for each grade level.

Mon, July 23 – HHS 9th grade

Tue, July 24 – HHS 10th grade

Wed, July 25 – HHS 11th grade

Thurs, July 26 – HHS 12th grade

Fri, July 27 is the HHS Makeup Day, 8:00a-3:00p in room M12 (located between the reference library and the attendance office).

We will meet in the Houston High School Auditorium. Report times are based on your student’s last name. Last names beginning with A-K, please report at 5:00p. Last names beginning with L-Z please report at 6:30p. Orientation and device deployment should last about 1.5 hours.During the session, you and your child will see an orientation presentation by the curriculum technology department before receiving your device.

There is a $50 Laptop Maintenance Fee to cover the cost of repairs and maintenance. Families with multiple students in the Blended Learning Program will only be expected to pay a maximum of $100. Please send an email to mason.grace@gmsdk12.orgif this applies to you.

Please pay the fee on the MySchoolBucks website (not the mobile app) prior to your assigned orientation date, and print a copy of the receipt to bring with you to the orientation session. The mobile app will only let you add funds to your child’s lunch account. To pay the device fee online:

  • Go to from a desktop or laptop computer.
  • Fill out form completely and click ADD TO BASKET
  • Click on Shopping Basket in upper right corner to complete the payment.

More information will follow in the next few days, and you will certainly receive a lot of information at your assigned orientation night. If you have any questions, please contact Chris Cooper (email: or phone 901-752-7888).
