  The books will be scanned into the information system return document.

Device distribution information

We now have technology available for families who need a device for home-based learning. Enos will be open on Thursday, April 2, 2020  from 9-11a.m..  Please drive up to pick up your device in the bus lane. We will use the old school entrance, by the bike rack for distribution. You will need to sign a form to accept the device. You must bring a valid Picture I.D. It would help if you would bring your own pen to use during process. A parent/guardian or a person on the emergency card should come to pick up the device. The form will be on our website so that you can read it in advance. Thank you!


Enos Technology Instructions for Pick-Up... Tomorrow, Thursday, April 2, 2020!  

All parents should enter the school from Walnut Street and make a right turn into the bus lane. Once you enter the bus lane, it will be a one- way, two-lane distribution site. Do not enter from the Elliott and Bond intersection. Maintaining one-way traffic will expedite the process for everyone.The car rider lanes will not be staffed during this time. All technology distribution will take place in the bus lane. We appreciate your cooperation as we tackle this challenge together.  

Once you pull in, please proceed all the way to the farthest possible point in the lane. You will be greeted by staff and volunteers. Please have your photo ID ready. If you are sending someone to pick up, please make sure s/he is listed on your child’s emergency contact list! 

*Bring a pen to use, and please pre-read the form online. This will expedite our distribution. 

If you are walking to the distribution site, please wait patiently by the bike rack using the social distancing protocol of 6 feet apart. Proper social distancing helps protect us all. 

If you are in a vehicle, please do not get out or turn your car off. 

Keep in mind, smoking is prohibited on school grounds. 

I am looking forward to this awesome experience as we roll out the learning for our Enos families.

In need of a Device?

Our district is working on a plan to distribute devices into the hands of students who do not currently have a device.  The City of Springfield is also working alongside the district to help provide a limited number of hotspots to provide internet to houses, as well.  

Please take the survey below.  You may have already received a district email/text with the link.  

Families should only fill out the form once for their entire family.
