It is a great pleasure to inform you that this year, Tanglewood Middle School has chosen to implement Google Chromebooks! Each student that fulfills the necessary requirements will receive their own Google Chromebook in a few weeks! These computers are seen as small laptops, but run the Chrome operating system. With your permission, your students will be bringing their Chromebooks home! They will be trained in school to use the devices. Parents are asked to pay $25 for insurance to cover accidents, and to visit the school for a brief presentation for parents on “Chromebook use.” Some parents were trained at the “Back to School Event.” Watch out for updates regarding dates for additional parent trainings.
