Need a Computer? DPS will loan you a Chromebook!

laptop

Chromebooks will be available to families at William Ford who do not have a computer or tablet in their home.  On Thursday, William Ford will host a “drive-through” Chromebook pick-up following the schedule below. These Chromebooks are ONLY on loan and need to be ONLY for families without any computers and/or tablets.  William Ford will issue ONE computer per household IF they do not have a computer, not per student.  These are only to be borrowed and due back to school when school begins again.  Parents will be completely liable and responsible for the upkeep, maintenance and condition of the Chromebook, including full replacement of the Chromebook if broken. 

Pick-up Schedule:  Come to the Pick-up Time below of your oldest child at William Ford.  (Ie. If you have a 4th and 1st grader, come to the time for 4th grader)

·  Fourth and Fifth Graders – 11:00-11:30

·  Second and Third Graders – 11:30-12:00

·  Kindergarten and First Graders – 12:00-12:30

Pick-up Directions:

Come to the time of your oldest child above.  Park along on Alber Street. Stop at a Yellow Cone and wait for a staff member to come to your car.  No need to leave your car. Parents in the car will be given a clipboard to fill out a contract that a school Chromebook has been borrowed.  While you fill out the contract, a staff member will get a Chromebook for your family. The Chromebook is to be returned the day students return to school.

Questions?  Call 313-827-6400 between 10:30 and 1:00.
