Distribution of Chromebooks:

The student Chromebook rollout for Pioneer Middle School is scheduled for September 20 for grade 8, September 21 for grade 7, and September 22 for grade 6 during your student’s science class. In order to receive a District-provided Chromebook next week, students and their families must have completed the following steps:

  1. reviewed and completed the Chromebook / iPad Online Take-Out Participation Agreement (this was one of the back-to-school registration forms in Mistar Parent Connection),

  1. fulfilled a liability requirement (non-refundable insurance premium OR refundable deposit),

  2. cleared all outstanding technology-related debts

If you haven’t completed the following steps, your student will have to wait until makeup distribution day on Tuesday, September 28 to get a Chromebook. No exceptions. For more information, please email [email protected] Due to lack of staff, we do not have time to confirm in advance if your student is eligible. If you’ve followed all of the steps as instructed, your students will receive a device. Thank you.

Positivity project:

As part of the Positivity Project, each week at Pioneer we will be working with students on developing positive character traits during Homeroom. Next week we will focus on curiosity. Please see the attached character card for more information.

Cell phones: Absent for the day:

All P-CCS students are allowed to have cell phones, but they must be turned off and put away from 8:15 a.m. to 3:09 p.m. each day. If you need to send a message to your student, please contact the main office rather than texting them.

Drop-off / pick-up procedures:

If you plan to drop off and / or pick up your student from school each day, please be prepared for traffic jams. All students who are dropped off must enter the building at the entrance to the event (gate 5) each morning (doors open at 7.45am). Please do not drop your student off at the main office (gate 1) as we must keep the front aisle clear for buses. The bus loop on the west side of the building is for buses only, so please do not enter this area. Finally, please do not drop / pick up your students on Rockledge Drive (the street behind Pioneer). This creates a security problem.
