• How to Pick Up Your Student's Device for the Upcoming Digital Learning Opportunities

    LOSD is getting ready to roll out our Digital Learning Opportunities for students. We are making sure each and every student in LOSD has an instructional learning device and Internet access. Starting tomorrow, we will begin checking out technology devices with those who responded to the At Home Access Survey. 

    If you responded to the survey that you need your student’s device from the school, please see the pickup schedule below. This schedule will not change so please make sure to be at the school during your window. Families with children at multiple schools will need to attend each site’s pickup time to ensure the device comes from the right school. 

    Device pickup will be a drive up procedure. Picking up your device will NOT result in breaking the Governor’s order; the Lake Oswego Police Department will be assisting families during the device pick up at each school. We are distributing the devices in a manner that is in line with the Governor’s “Stay Home, Save Lives” Executive Order.

    You will be asked to fill out this information card PRIOR to pick up. If you do not have it done in advance, you will be asked to pull out of the line and fill out a new form. If you do not have a printer, please put the following items on a piece of paper that will be handed to the distributor of the device:  Student Name, Parent Name, Grade, School Name, and Parent Signature taking Responsibility for the Device and Charger.  

    You are responsible for the device. If it is lost, broken or damaged during this time, you will be held financially responsible for the device.

Please do not come to school for your hotspots until you receive specific communication that this equipment has arrived. 

    If you did not sign up for a device, we will have another pickup time for you next week. Please fill out this survey if you need to reserve a device. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T3Z5DKY

    You will be contacted by the district or your child’s teacher early next week with more details about what to expect with Digital Learning Opportunities. Students will begin interacting with their teachers on April 2. 

    Thank you for responding to our requests for information as we get everyone set up for the upcoming Digital Learning Opportunities. We are looking forward to seeing many of you at the technology device pickup this week, and reengaging with all of your students very soon.

  • Here are tips for safely cleaning and caring for your technology devices. These tips apply to all products:

    • Unplug all external power sources, devices, and cables.

    • Use only a soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid abrasive cloths, towels, paper towels, or similar items.

    • Never spray cleaners directly onto the item. Using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, you may gently wipe the hard, nonporous surfaces of your product, such as the keyboard or other exterior surfaces. Don't use bleach, window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, ammonia, abrasives, or cleaners containing hydrogen peroxide to clean your product. CAUTION: 70 percent Isopropyl alcohol is highly flammable, so keep it and anything covered in it away from any sources of ignition.

    • Strong alcohol can eat away the coating on LCD screens. However, LCD-safe solutions such as 50 percent isopropyl alcohol (diluted with distilled water) can be used to properly disinfect screens. Never use Windex® or similar products, which contain ammonia, and never use any solutions containing acetone, ethyl alcohol (ethanol), ethyl acid, or methyl chloride. Also, while diluted vinegar may be safe for removing dirt and smudges from LCD screens, it’s not an effective disinfectant against many types of common germs, including those that cause colds, flu, and viruses.

    • Avoid getting moisture in any opening, and don't submerge your product in any cleaning agents. To clean, wet a microfiber cloth in a solution so that it’s damp enough to feel wet, but not damp enough to create any drips --drips are BAD!  

    • Avoid excessive wiping, which might cause damage. 

    • Wait for the device to dry completely before turning it back on.
