  • School Issued Chromebook reminders

    In order to best prepare for our continuity of learning during these uncertain times we ask that you keep your school issued Chromebook until further notice. We also ask that you understand Chromebooks represent a considerable investment of school funds and so we need your assistance with maintaining the proper working conditions of the devices by keeping the battery of your device charged throughout the summer months. When the Chromebook is left unplugged for extended periods of time the battery loses its charge and ceases to work; the replacement cost of a battery is approximately $70 and will be billed to the family as outlined in the Chromebook Use Policy. **Graduating Seniors Only: If you are still in possession of a Ballston Spa High School issued Chromebook, please turn it in at the high school greeters desk as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact the Main Office at (518) 884-7150. Thank you!
