The Conard Library now has laptops available for student checkout!

Any student who does not have computer or internet access at home can check out a laptop for a 2 week period.

 

Dear Parent/Guardian:


The West Hartford Public Schools provide access to technology to support teaching and

learning as well as to promote communication and collaboration. We are pleased to announce

that a limited number of laptops will be available for students to check out for home use

through the library media center. Laptops will be issued for a period of two weeks, but may be

checked out from time to time throughout the school year. Students and parents must sign the

Technology Equipment Loan Agreement prior to signing out the laptop for the first

time. If at any time you no longer want your child to participate in this program you must notify

the school in writing.

These laptops are equipped with 24/7 mobile access which means there does not need to be an

Internet or wifi connection at home to access online resources. Students may use these laptops

for educational and research purposes, but with 24/7 access parental advisory is encouraged.

Please review the Administrative Guidelines for Responsible Use of Technology

with your child as well as any expectations that you set for your own family.

For more information on safe and responsible use of technology please visit CyberCompass—A

West Hartford Internet Awareness Initiative.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.


Sincerely,

Julio Duarte

Principal
