iPad Insurance

This is a reminder that the 2nd semester has begun.  If you did not pay the full amount of $35, now is the time to pay for the second installment of your child's iPad insurance.  Please note that this insurance covers iPad damages. In addition, iPads must be in their case with the screen protector on at all times for insurance to be valid. It does not include insurance for a lost or stolen iPads. Please log onto parent/student portal to find the balance due.  To pay the fee, please click here to go to the online payments.

 

Digital Diet

Beginning in the second semester, we are implementing an additional support for students who might be struggling staying up with their academics. Students who have two or more D or F grades will be placed on a "Digital Diet" with their iPads. This means that they will meet with their academic counselor and all non-academic apps will be deleted from their iPads. They will remain on this "diet" until they raise their grades, and will not be able to add any apps without administrator permission. If you would like to investigate how to set restrictions on your child’s iPad look through the LTP Parent FAQs and Parental Restrictions links.
