    Bring every day, charge every nightIt has been over a month since Rainier Beach High School students received individual district-provided laptops to use for schoolwork. These laptops are making a tremendous difference in providing our students with equitable access to technology both at school and at home.

    We ask families to please remind our students of the following three requests until they become a habit:
    1. Please fully charge your laptop at home every night. 
    2. Bring your charged laptop to school every day, since we are not able to provide additional laptops.
    3. Take good care of your laptop. In particular, please do not place heavy items on top of your laptop to avoid damage to the screen.
