Chromebook Returns – Graduating and Departing WRDSB Students

Dear Graduating Students & Parents/Guardians of Graduating Students,

It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the school year. It has been an exciting time to be a student within the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB). It was almost four years ago that every student in a grade 9 class in our school received a Chromebook for school use.

It is time for those Chromebooks to be returned!

All devices which have been provided through the Chromebook 1:1 Initiative remain the property of WRDSB. Therefore, it is expected that when a student is leaving the Board or is graduating, the device will be returned to the school.  Any devices not returned will be “BRICKED” by the WRDSB and rendered useless.

Graduating students (or those leaving the WRDSB) should plan to return their Chromebook and charger in the 1st floor foyer in the morning prior to final exam. Graduating students who do not have exams are asked to return their Chromebook Wednesday afternoon (June 19th).
