Instead of attending a presentation the night of deployment, all parents and students are required to watch an informational video and read the Blended Learning Procedure Manual prior to device collection. Both items can be found on the Blended Learning Page.
We are still asking that you arrive during your assigned window to pick up your device. If you have more than one child at the same school, you will be able to pick up the other student devices as well.
You will need to bring a Device Deployment Form that will show that you have paid the fee, registered in Skyward, and include information needed to deploy the device. It will also include a request for signature to confirm that you have viewed the video and reviewed the Blended Learning Procedure Manual. The form will be available for download on Family Access, but not until Monday at noon to allow families more time to meet the below criteria.
Before being allowed to pick up your device, the following steps must be completed:
- Students must be registered in Skyward for the 2018-2019 school year
- The maintenance fee must be paid in Myschoolbucks
- You must have the Device Deployment Form printed from Skyward Family Access (available Monday by noon)

Does the parent and student both have to be there to pick up the device?
No, it’s perfectly fine for either the parent or the student to be present to pick up the device. Only the student or a parent/guardian may pick up a student’s device.
Can I get a sibling’s device the same night?
Yes! A family may pick up the devices for all of their children on the same night, as long as the student(s) attend(s) the same school.
If I have students at different schools, can I get them all on the same night?
No. Unfortunately, only laptops will be available at the high school and only iPads will be available at the middle schools.
What if I can’t make it to either the assigned date or the make-up date?
Our tech staff will be available in the school’s tech office throughout the first week of school for students to drop by and pick up their device. Students will need to have the signed Device Deployment Form.
What if I have a problem paying the fee online?
MySchoolBucks has a support line you may call for help. You may also contact Mason Grace (901-752-7888) for assistance. If all else fails, you may also bring a check or cash on your assigned device deployment date, and someone will be there to take your payment.
