      Make up day for any student who has not picked up a device.

    • Online registration for the 2020-21 school year through Powerschool must be complete before a student will be issued a device.  This includes turning in 2 proof of residencies.
    • A $25.00 device insurance fee with a $0 deductible is available for purchase to cover the cost of damages.  The insurance can be purchased online at  www.paypams.com or with a check or money order the day you pick up the Chromebook.  Please do not bring cash.
    • Parents/Guardians will be responsible for a $75 fee the first time a device is damaged, regardless of the cause of the damage and a fee of $50 will be required for each subsequent damage repair request if the device insurance is not purchased.
    • All students/parents must read the Lee County Device Policy  (click on the name to read the policy) prior to device pickup.
    • All students/parents must print and sign the Lee County Device Agreement  (click on the name to print the agreement) prior to the device being picked up.
    • Devices will be handed out by pulling up to the auditorium of Smiths Station Junior High, giving the faculty your student's name, and Device Agreement.  A device will then be issued to your student and handed to you by a faculty member.  Please DO NOT get out of your vehicle.
    • Distribution will begin next week.  Parents will be instructed when to report to the school via text and email.  Please don't not show up until your appointed times.
    • You do not have to use a Lee County issued Chromebook.  You may use your personal device.
    • Most all programs used for virtual and traditional learning platforms are webbased meaning you will not have to download programs for laptop computers, desktop computers and Chromebooks.  Electronic devices that require the use of "APPS" will require the apps to be downloaded.  You will be contacted by your virtual/tradional teacher with specific details.
