Dear Parents/Guardians of students in Grade 9 Classes:
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Every student in a grade 9 class in the
WRDSB receives a Chromebook for school use.
What is a Chromebook?
A Chromebook is a mobile computer that runs on Google’s Chrome Operating System.
These machines are designed to be used primarily while connected to the internet.
They are optimized to allow the use of Google applications (i.e. Google Drive, Calendar,
Gmail, Google Classroom, etc.).
WRDSB students already have G Suite accounts provided to them by the Board which
they will be able to use on their Chromebooks.
When will students be receiving their Chromebook?
Gr. 9 Glenview Park students in all Cohorts may pick up their Chromebook on
Friday, September 4th from 9:00am to 3:00pm. See the schedule below for
specific times based on last names.
A to G – 9-10am Back Entrance off of Henry street
H to L – 10-11am Back Entrance off of Henry street
M to R – 11-12pm Back Entrance off of Henry street
S to Z – 1-2pm Back Entrance off of Henry street
Please follow all health & safety precautions including wearing a face mask when
you arrive at the school.
If you are unable to pick up your Chromebook on September 4th, your homeroom
teacher will provide this to you on your first day of class according to your
Cohort. OR *Distance Learning Program students (Cohorts C & D) will need to call
the school to arrange alternate pick up times on September 8 th
