We hope you had a good summer and are looking forward to the start of another school year. As a reminder for students who opted to keep their iPad over the summer, please make sure you bring your device fully charged to your first day of school on Tuesday, August 20th.
7th – 12th grade students who do not have an iPad, please plan on receiving your iPad at your school’s registration day.
4th – 6th grade students who do not have an iPad, ETS staff will deliver iPads to classrooms during the first few days of school.
If you would like to pick up your iPad ahead of time, you can come to the ETS office to pick up your device before the first day of school. The ETS office is located at 720 Santa Barbara St., is open from 8am to 3:30pm, and is closed from noon to 1pm for lunch.
Students – Please make sure you know your Google password. If you do not know your password or you have not set up your password, please go to https://password.sbunified.org. You will need this password prior to getting your iPad and to log into various student systems.
Optional iPad Insurance will be available from a third party vendor should you be interested in purchasing it. Insurance can be purchased now through August 20th and will cover the iPad for a calendar year. Insurance costs about $28 and covers unlimited instances of damage with no deductible. iPad insurance does not cover lost devices. This vendor is not associated with SBUnified and insurance is made available as a courtesy to families. You can enroll using a credit/debit card at the following link or you may come to the District Office if you would like to pay cash: http://www.worthavegroup.com/gpo/sbunified
As a reminder, without insurance, the cost to replace a broken iPad screen is approximately $100.
