Laptop deployment information
GMSD will deploy student laptops during the week of August 5th. To accommodate families’ schedules, we have scheduled device deployment all at one location: Houston High School. Please make note below for your assigned date and time for pickup.
We know your time is valuable. If you have multiple children in grades 6-12, you may pick up devices for all of them during any one of your assigned pickup dates (3:00p-8:00p) or the Friday makeup day (8:00a-3:00p). If you are not able to make either your assigned pickup date or the makeup day, please email Christopher.Cooper@gmsdk12.org to attend another day during that week. If all else fails, your child may pick up their device at their school during the first week of school.
There is a $50 laptop maintenance fee or a $30 iPad maintenance fee to cover the cost of insuring the device. If you did not pay during online registration, please pay the fee on the MySchoolBucks website (not the mobile app) as soon as possible. To pay the device fee, go to www.myschoolbucks.com from a desktop or laptop computer. Once logged in:
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.
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 if this applies to you.
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.
Parents will need to 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. The fee for high school students is $50. To pay the device fee online:
