Chromebook Options
 
Option 1
If you already own a Google Chromebook from your previous school, you can continue to use it at Lansdale Catholic, so long as it meets the minimal requirements. You will need to drop off your device at LC during the week of August 3rd, so that our IT Department can configure it to our network and firewall specifications before the start of the school year in September 2020. Students will receive their device during the first days of school. Drop-off times will be listed soon.
 
 
Option 2
If you are purchasing a Chromebook on your own, it must meet the minimal requirements and you will need to drop-off your Chromebook to LC beginning on Wednesday,  August 5th.  Our IT Department will need to configure your Chromebook to our network and firewall specifications before the start of the school year. Students will receive their device during the first days of school.
 
We must have your device during this week in order to ensure it is ready by the first week of school. If you are unable to deliver your device during this week, please contact our Technology Coordinator, Rob Borkowski, to arrange an earlier time to drop off your device. Please note that you must schedule a time to drop-off your device...walk-ins will not be accepted. An email went out on Monday 8/3 with a sign-up link. Please use that link to book your drop-off time.
