Good Morning Seniors,

iPads will be collected on Tuesday 23rd and Wednesday 24th between 7:30-9:00am in the Main Lobby.   

PLEASE DO NOT ERASE YOUR IPAD ON YOUR OWN, it will make the process longer.  All you need to do before you hand it in is:

  1. Clear your passcode or change it to 1234

  2. Sign out of iCloud and the iTunes & the App Store

  • If you're using iOS 10.3 or later, tap Settings > [your name]. Scroll down and tap Sign Out. Enter your Apple ID password and tap Turn Off.

  • If you're using iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud > Sign Out. Tap Sign Out again, then tap Delete from My [device] and enter your Apple ID password. Then go to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Apple ID > Sign Out.

  1. Save files that you want to keep to Google Drive (then follow directions at bottom to export everything out of Google Drive to your personal account)

During the turn in process, you will be expected to:

  • Return the school issued iPad you were provided

  • Return the cord, brick, and case that you were provided- please do not bring substitute equipment that you purchased elsewhere.

  • Pay for any unsettled bills (cracked/damaged iPad costs, lost equipment)

When you return the equipment, please be prepared to pay for any unsettled fees.

  • Lost cord- $10

  • Lost brick- $10

  • Lost case- $20

  • Damaged iPad- $45 (for common damages)

We will provide receipts for all payments received.  Any students who owe a fee and are not prepared to pay will be added to the lost book/lost uniform fee list- which needs to be paid prior to graduation.
