Please understand the electronics will be locked but I will not be responsible for any damaged equipment. ONLY send in items your child regularly uses at home and it needs to be in a protective case. Do not send in the family iPad unless you are sure your child can handle the responsibility. NO INTERNET will be available so games must be loaded on the device. If your child does not have a device he/she may use one of the classroom devices.
