Our shipment of new laptops arrived on Friday and we are working swiftly to update these new devices for distribution. Students who attend Azalea Middle, face to face, will need to return laptops that were distributed during the spring October 15th, 16th and 19th . A student must return the previously assigned laptop, even if it was assigned from another school, before they can receive a new one. If there is any damage, a form must be completed prior to the assignment of a new laptop. Face to Face students, once they’ve returned the older laptop, will receive paperwork to be assigned a new laptop. This paperwork must be completed in it’s entirety by a parent/guardian and returned to the school before a new laptop is assigned. Each new laptop including a charger, will be assigned in a bookbag with the device number clearly written on the outside of the bag. It is your child’s responsibility to charge the laptop each night as well as carry the bag to and from school daily as it will be utilized in most classes. Laptops will be stored in classes before lunch and during PE.

This is information on the Azalea Readiness To Learn Plan
Please abide by the car line procedures and do not pick up/drop off your child on the side street (79th St). This is a safety concern as there is a high rate of traffic on this street during arrival/dismissal times. Additionally the street has been marked with no parking signs and we want to respect our neighbors in the surrounding community.
*Students are only permitted on campus 30 minutes before (9:00 a.m.) and 30 minutes after (4:30 p.m.) School unless they are involved with a school sanctioned event. There has been an increase in students arriving extremely early and being picked up late outside school hours. This poses a safety concern as our Teachers/Staff are not on duty to supervise. Please assist us in abiding by this request.
