Garden City High School will hold a number of checkout sessions to issue iPads to students returning for the coming school year. The checkout will be held in the GCHS iPad Support Room. Freshmen and new students will be able to pick up their iPads during the first week of school.
Students must be enrolled and have paid the current school year fees as well as any past iPad fees before they can receive their iPad. If there was damage to the iPad from the previous year, the student will have to pay a deductible before the iPad is reissued. The checkout process may take up to ten minutes.
This year’s sophomores, juniors, and seniors may come during the following times:
August 1- 4 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
August 8 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
August 9 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
August 10 1:00 – 4:30 p.m.
August 11 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Students that do not pick up the iPad during one of the scheduled times, will have it issued to them before or after school in the iPad Support Room.
This year, the Seniors’ iPad 2s will be replaced with a new iPad. Seniors will have the option to purchase their used iPads for $65; the deadline to purchase the iPad will be August 18th (all fees must be paid before the iPad can be purchased). There will not be the option to purchase the new iPad for seniors at the end of the year. If there is content students want from their older iPads, a date will be set to retrieve those files. The cases for the new iPads are not in yet so there may be a delay in handing the new iPads out.
The first day of school is Monday, August 14th, with a half-day orientation for all students in kindergarten through fifth grade, seventh grade, ninth and tenth grades and all students new to Garden City Public Schools. The first full day of school for Garden City Public Schools is Tuesday, August 15th, when all classes will be in session for the start of the 2017-18 school year.
