At-Home Chromebooks

For all students, Kindergarten - Grade 5, Chromebooks are at Ritchie Park in carts and are not sent home daily.  Therefore, if you are in need of a device for your child at home, you can request one.  Devices will be prepared centrally and will be delivered to schools checked out to the student. Once received and checked out, devices will go home in the student’s backpack.  If your family is in need of a MiFi device, please email your child's teacher and the school will complete a MiFi request for your family.


Synergy ParentVUE is the primary home-to-school communication vehicle for schools to share information regarding grades, attendance, scheduling, and more.

School Cash Online

New Online Payment System Available for School-Related Fees

school cash onlineSchoolCash Online helps parents and guardians pay school-related fees — such as field trip costs — safely, quickly and easily. This service will increase efficiency and security by making payments directly into schools’ bank accounts and eliminating the need for teachers to handle money. The new system puts all school-related fees online so payments can be made using a credit card or e-check. Cash and check payments directly to schools are still an option.
