Yorktown High School Laptop Collection Information Spring 2021

Arlington Public Schools has provided you with technological resources to support your learning inside and outside the classroom while enrolled in the district. As we approach graduation day, you are required to turn in any technological device (MacBook Air and charger, wireless hotspot, etc.) that was loaned to you while enrolled in Arlington Public Schools. Please read the information below carefully.

Preparing Your MacBook for Turn-In

Save all of your files and work to an external device, such as a flash drive. Save everything that is saved directly on your computer, everything in your Google Drive, everything saved in OneDrive (Office 365), and on any Arlington Public Schools network drive. Once you have saved your work, sign out of iCloud if you are signed in. You may find the two links helpful as you save your files.

A few other items to keep in mind:

  • Remove any exterior cases or stickers that have been added to the device.
  • Clean the entire laptop. A wrung-out disinfectant wipe works well.

Laptop Turn-In Date

All seniors and withdrawing underclassmen are required to turn in their laptop and all loaned technological resources (charger, hotspots, etc.) on June 16-17, 2021.

As a part of our end-of-year closeout, we will have an opportunity for our graduating seniors to turn in their APS issued MacBook Air and all remaining school-issued items (uniforms, books, musical instruments)  in the Cafeteria on Wednesday 6/16 from 9am-1pm and Thursday 6/17 from 9am-1pm.
