Discovery Education Science Techbook Parent/Student Update
We are in the final stages of preparing to launch the use of Discovery Education Science Techbooks in physics, biology, earth science and physical science classes for the upcoming school year. The great news for parents at this time: there is nothing to purchase or prepare!
Student information will be uploaded into the Discovery Education system late this week and students will be provided with log in information on the first day of classes. These “textbooks” are fully digital; students will access everything online via an Internet browser; i.e. Firefox or Explorer, or via a specific Discovery app.
Please contact Cindy Rudy at email@example.com or 757-259-1423 with any questions.

Upon receipt of the signature page of the Acceptable Use Policy, iPads will be distributed on Monday, August 18 for US students and Tuesday, August 19 for MS students. All other LS students, with the exception of first grade students, will receive his or her iPad on Wednesday, August 20. Students should bring iPad cases to school on the first day.

Beginning this school year, students can indiviualize their iPad by slecting his or her own iPad case! Mindful of protecting the device, we recommend obtaining a case that protects both the corners and the screen of these 3rd generation iPads. Happily there are nearly endless options in a variety of price ranges. Click here for a list of of good iPad case options.
