Change in Technology Return Date for Summer University
Good Morning Parents/Guardians,
I apologize, but I didn't realize that Friday, July 3rd was a holiday for most people including our custodial staff for the district which means that the buildings will not be open for technology return.
Instead, we will start technology return on Tuesday, June 30 until 2pm.
Updated Technology Return Times and Dates:
Tuesday, June 30: 11am-2pm
Wednesday, July 1: 8am-2pm
Thursday, July 2: 8am-2pm
Please return to Grant Middle School: 1800 W. Monroe
Don't forget your masks, hotspots, and charging cords!
Again, I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion! If for some reason these times do not work out for you, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can work something out.
