Dear FHMS Parents and Students,
We understand that the uncertainty in our world right now brings additional stress to homes, families, and communities. We hope to provide as much communication as possible during this transition so that each of you feel supported during our online learning experience. With that said, technology is an integral part of online learning at Fort Herriman and during the school dismissal, if necessary, students with limited technology access at home will have the option to check out a Chromebook which will allow for continued student learning opportunities during this time. The purpose of the Chromebook is to ensure students will have access to complete academic tasks, collaborate more effectively, and further their education.
Chromebooks for those with limited access at home will be available for check out beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, from 12:00pm- 3:00pm and also Tuesday, March 17th from 8am-4pm at Fort Herriman Middle School. Administrators will be available to help you with check out and answer your questions. If you are interested in borrowing a device please follow the attached link to select a time that works best for you.
It is also required that you complete the attached user agreement. You can bring it with you or fill it out on campus.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
