The School District of Lee County is preparing for distance learning by distributing Chromebooks to certain students in need.  Elementary Schools will sign out Chromebooks to students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade in need of computer access this week.  Only one Chromebook is available per household.

Chromebooks will only be distributed to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who meet the following criteria:

  • Do not have an older sibling already issued a District Chromebook in grades 6-12
  • Do not have a computer of any type in the home

If families choose not to use computer-based learning while schools are closed, 10-day packets of instructional material are also available at their child’s school.  The first packet can be picked up during the same time frame as their assigned Chromebook distribution.

Kindergarten through 2nd grade students meeting the same criteria as 3rd through 5th grade students will be able to sign out Chromebooks next week.  The schedule will be sent home through School Messenger and posted online at www.leeschools.net/COVID-19.  Middle and high school students already have District issued Chromebooks.
