RES iPad Deployment Night

On Thursday, October 9, the 5th grade iPads will be distributed.  During the school day, 5th graders will work with the GCPS technology department and technicians from Apple to do some background work in order to speed up the process on Deployment Night later that evening.  This requires that we have the Apple ID and passwords with each 5th grader at school.

Mr. Gardner sent home a paper to record this Apple ID and password. Please fill it out and send it back to RES on Wednesday, October 8. If you attended another school for deployment you do not need to send the password, nor do you need to attend the 6:30 PM Deployment Night.

Click here to obtain another copy of Mr. Gardner’s “5th Grade Principal’s Homework.”

We are officially starting iPad Deployment Night at 6:30 PM.  Families may arrive as early as 6:15 PM.
