From a March 17, 2020, Everett Public Schools news release.
As a way to reduce exposure to COVD-19 Coronavirus, Everett Public Schools is providing resources for students and families during the March 16th to April 24th school closure mandated by the state. If your student needs a device during school closure, you can pick it up on Wednesday, March 18th.
In addition to free meals for students, there are also student engagement materials that include resources aligned to each grade level, standards-based content areas and support for special programs. Students and their families can select materials to explore and learn from while students are at home. A planning template is also available for preschool through elementary.
In order to better engage in learning while at home, it is vital for students to have a computer and internet access.
All high school students and most middle school students already have a 1:1 device, thanks to the 2016 Technology Levy.
If any student does not have access to a computer at home, they can pick up a device from Everett Public Schools to use at home while the school closure is in effect.
You can pick up a device at the following two locations on March 18, 2020, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm:
- Community Resource Center - 3900 Broadway, Everett WA.
- Jackson High School - 1508 136th St. SE, Mill Creek WA.
Parents/guardians will need to provide their student(s) ID number and sign a Usage Agreement Form.
Internet Hotspots will also be available to check out for those who do not have internet access at home.
As a reminder, we are posting updates on our website every day, including locations for student meals and other resources, at www.everettsd.org/.
