Laptop Orientation Night: Attention 6th grade parents and parents of new middle school students. As a part
of our educational programs at MDES we offer students in grades 6-8 Apple iPads that can go home with
them. As a requirement of this program parents and students must go through an orientation program with
the school that covers such topics as computer safety, care and use of the iPads and policies associated with
technology. You will also be asked to sign off on our acceptable use policy as well. It is mandatory that parents
AND students attend this meeting. The date and time for this meeting will be Thursday October 16 at 6
PM in the forum and should last no more than one hour at the most. If you cannot make this meeting you
will need to make an appointment with Mr. Oppewall (our technology person) in order to satisfy this
requirement but in the meantime students will not be able to take their iPads home.
Portable CD Players: First grade is in need of a few hand held portable CD players, if you have one or two
lying around we would love to give them a new home. You can send them in with your student or drop it off
in the office.
FLU CLINIC: Tuesday, October 28th from 8:30-11:00 there will be a flu clinic in the cafeteria. Permission to
vaccinate and vaccine information sheets will be available on the school website and at the school. Permission
forms need to be turned into the office by no later than Friday, October 17 to reserve the right number of
vaccines. Any questions, please contact the School Nurse @ 276-3348, ext. 248.
