Parent Laptop Information Sessions
To help parents understand the laptop initiative, every parent of a student new to HCPS Middle Schools is required to complete parent technology orientation. Parents who have completed training for an older sibling or parents who are employed HCPS are not required to attend training but are encouraged to attend. If you have attended a training session in the past, a form will be provided in August for you to submit electronically to Instructional Technology. If you are in need of training, you may attend an in-person training session hosted at any HCPS middle school or you may complete parent training online. Online training is updated each fall (August) and made available to parents of rising 6th graders and to parents of students new to HCPS schools. Live sessions in HCPS middle schools are held during the early fall only.

* We will only be able to distribute laptops and collect fees for the students in each grade level during the specified date and time only. We apologize, in advance, if this causes families multiple trips to the school.
More details will come throughout the summer regarding paying fees online and a mandatory laptop training session for those parents/guardians who will have a HCPS-issued laptop in their home for the first time.
For those students who are unable to be at school on this date/time, schedules and bus information will be available via the ParentPortal during Labor Day weekend. Laptops will be issued the first week of school.
