Information shared by Howard County Board of Education member Vicky Cutroneo on Facebook:

From HCPSS: We are aware that some students have not received their laptop device as of Sunday, April 19. HCPSS’ distribution center has informed us that many devices were shipped on Friday, April 17 and should be delivered by the close of business on Wednesday, April 22. Please email your child’s principal if you haven’t received device by then.

Teachers are aware students may not have access to Canvas or Google Meet. As this is the first week of Continuity of Learning (COL), staff is not teaching new concepts or assigning new work. As we work to ensure that every student has access to online learning, teachers will be very flexible if students do need to complete any outstanding work for third quarter.

A technology page has been created on Canvas for students who are having technology issues. Please log onto the page and click Student Technology Resource Page for information on how to reset a password, join a Google Meet session, and much more
