Chromebook Distribution

Alta is implementing a 1:1 technology plan! Many of you indicated you need to check out a Chromebook from us, instead of bringing your own device to school each day. We would like to ensure that you have what you need to be successful on the first day of school. If you are in need of a device, please participate in the drive-up distribution in the west parking lot according to the following schedule:

9th Graders–Thursday, August 20th 8:00am – 10:00am

10th Graders–Thursday, August 20th 10:00am – 12:00pm

11th Graders–Friday, August 21st 8:00am – 10:00am

12th Graders–Friday, August 21st 10:00am – 12:00pm

Please note:

  •  If you cannot come at your scheduled time, you may switch to another available time, but please avoid changing as much as possible.
  • If you are unable to come on Thursday or Friday we will have some Chromebook check-outs available in the first week of school.
  • Students will be responsible for charging their devices each night and bringing it to school each day.
