  • UPDATE: Care for our Technology

    Posted by Help Desk SW on 3/25/2021 1:00:00 PM

    SWMS & SWHS students & families -  we need your help. Recently, the tech department has handled a lot of broken laptops - too many students are mistreating their laptops (swining the bags around, throwing the stylus around the room), or coming to school with their device not charged or without their school laptop bage to help protect it. Attached is a flyer with some best practices for laptop care. Please review these and remind your children that every student and parent signed a policy that they will care for their device, and may be charged for intentioal damage. Thanks, SWCS Tech Dept
