August 27, 2018
Good morning -
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. After an unanticipated lengthier delay, we received word at the end of last week that the iPads have been shipped and should arrive by the end of this week. We have adjusted the plans on our end and iPads will be distributed once they have been configured - hopefully towards the end of this week or early next week. Our staff is fully aware and students will not be 'behind' due to this unanticipated delay. The beginning of the year is always an 'appropriately messy transition' and we will be sure to help all students acclimate accordingly. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
If you have not yet completed the paper work (thanks to those who have already done so), I have copied the information down below. This paper work can be dropped off at the Blake front office or can be brought to school by students.

For Families Beginning Their Lease in August, 2018...
I am also sharing a link to a packet containing documents (Medfield Public Schools iPad Lease/Borrow Documents August 2018) that require your signatures and the signatures of the students as well. The first document, 'Apple Device Lease, Use, and Insurance Agreement', spells out the agreement between the families and the Medfield Public Schools. Please read it in its entirety and sign the areas that require your signature. The second document, 'Apple Device Lease Registration Form', is the document that assures delivery of your device. The third document, 'Responsible Use Agreement', details the expectations and responsibilities for use of these devices. Please bring these signed documents to the distribution session or they can be dropped off at the Blake Middle School main office.
For Families Borrowing Devices From the District in August, 2018...
The document, 'Responsible Use Agreement'(Medfield Public Schools iPad Lease/Borrow Documents August 2018), details the expectations and responsibilities for use of the devices. This document must be signed by both students and parents/guardians. Please bring this completed form to the distribution session or it can be dropped off at the Blake Middle School main office.
