Chromebook Returns
Go To Top of Page

Hello Orchard Families,
 
In the coming weeks, it will soon be the end of the academic year for 2020-21. We thank you for your time and patience through this trying school year.
 
Chromebooks were checked out to students for distance learning and will need to be returned before the end of the school year. Below is the return window for when to return Chromebooks along with their provided charger. Hotspot devices in addition to their charger and contents should be returned on your return date as well. For the sake of maintaining social distancing, the return process will be a drive-up. Please do remain in your vehicles for the return and wear a face mask. Do not park and walk up unless instructed by staff to do so. Our return process will take place in the front parking lot. Families will be directed by staff through the front parking lot and will stop next to the tables for returns. If you have multiple students you may return the other devices at the same time to save you an additional trip.
For those who will have ELEVATE MATH / CSI during summer, Chromebooks will NOT be required to return on this date. However, hotspots will still need to be returned as the service for these devices will be deactivated by the City of San Jose as they will no longer be supported.
