In order for the school district to have a clear accounting of students that are vaccinated, we are requesting that you scan your child’s Covid-19 vaccination card to their school nurse no later than Monday, December 6, 2021.

Coping with a public health emergency can be stressful and worrisome. You may have to deal with uncertainty, concerns about your health and the health of your family and friends, a change in your routine, limited access to needed resources, and more.
Summer Chromebook Access
Dear Orange Family,
As we enter the Summer Break, we would like to remind parents and students of the following Chromebook guidelines. The Chromebook is provided to students for educational purposes only. Only the student assigned to the Chromebook should utilize the device. Playing games, listening to music, and watching movies are considered inappropriate uses of the school device. When using a Chromebook, be sure to keep it in the case, if one was provided. Hold the Chromebook with two hands, and always place it on an even surface to prevent it from falling. Do not eat or drink around the Chromebook, and finally, do not overcharge the device. Any damage incurred to the Chromebook will be the responsibility of the parent or the legal guardian. We encourage you to properly store the device in a secure area when not in use over the summer. Thank you.
Superintendent of Schools
