    DLE Middle School Laptop Management

    LAPTOP ISSUES & LOANERS PROCEDURES

    The following “schedule” and guidelines will ensure students have a working laptop during the school day and instructional time is not interrupted.

    8:30 – 8:45 AM

    • Students will go to their 7th period class to pick up their laptop for the school day.
    • Before leaving for their 1st period classes, all students must turn on their laptops.

    8:30 – 9:30 AM

    • If there are any issues with the laptops after they are turned on during the 8:30 – 8:45 pick up time, a repair ticket will be filled out and they will be sent to the library to receive a loaner. Once the loaner is received students will be sent to their first period class.
    • At the end of the day, during 7th period, students must completely shut down the computer. This does not mean shutting the lid - that only puts the computer to sleep. Once computers are completely shut down they must be plugged into the cart to charge.
