FCPSOn Laptop Pickup (Summer 2018)
FCPSOn at Rocky Run
FCPSOn at Rocky Run extends student learning and ensures that students have equal opportunity to develop Portrait of a Graduate attributes by providing them with opportunities to control the time, place, path, and pace of their learning through meaningful learning experiences. With this, every student will need a laptop to access instructional material/content frequently. You will be provided an FCPSOn issued device or you can provide your own. The FCPSOn device permission form should be read and reviewed to understand the acceptable and responsible use of the FCPS laptop. This form does not need to be turned in if you are using a school laptop. The FCPSOn form also states the financial responsibility of the families should something happen to the FCPS device. By accepting to use the FCPS laptop during the school year, you automatically agree to the terms should there be damage to the device not covered by FCPS.
If using your own personal device in place of a FCPS issued device, please complete and return the FCPSOn permission form to indicate that you are using your own device. Your personal device must have a keyboard and be compatible with Google Apps for Education and Microsoft Office. Smartphones are not an acceptable substitute.
All students will be required to submit their completed mandatory opening of school forms before picking up their FCPS computer.
All students, 7th and 8th graders, can pick up their FCPSOn issued laptop in the school cafeteria on these dates and times:
- Aug 13 from 4pm - 6pm
- Aug 14 from 8am - noon
- Aug 15 from noon - 4pm
A parent/guardian must accompany their child and turn in completed mandatory forms in order to obtain their child’s computer. Students may pick up their computer at any time during each of these posted windows. Please plan to spend 20 to 30 minutes at school preparing your laptop.
