Middle & high school Chromebook & hotspots drive-throughs on Wednesday mornings in May

Distance Learning for middle and high school students in May will be online using the take-home Chromebook. 

If a middle school or high school student was issued a take-home Chromebook that is damaged or missing, then please take advantage of our Chromebook swap drive-through at Bartlesville High School that will shift in May to Wednesday MORNINGS from 10-11 a.m.

You can pull up in the loop drive off Hillcrest Drive, but please don't get out of your vehicle unless instructed to do so. Mrs. Meador will address Chromebook issues directly in front of the school, while for hotspots you would pull on around toward the exit for help from Mr. Michel.

Chromebook issues

Mrs. Meador, the Student Technology Support Team teacher, will need to know which school the student attends and his or her name (or ID number, if known). Please maintain proper 6-foot social distancing when dropping off a Chromebook or charger where directed. Mrs. Meador will place any replacement device at a separate spot which you may retrieve when instructed.

Mrs. Meador will not be checking insurance status nor assessing any fees until after the event each week when it is safe for her to evaluate and repair submitted devices.

Cellular hotspots

The new Connected Bruins program can provide, upon request, a cellular hotspot for a middle or high school student who lacks home internet service. Please see the online description of that program.

Hotspots can only provide about an hour of streaming video per day. So if you have no home internet service, please review the following options which can provide better access to streaming video:
