Student Laptop Device Loaner Program - Waitlist request due Monday, August 10!

Kapolei Elementary School is identifying students who: (1) Do not have access to any other computer in their home; (2) have own home internet Wi-fi access and; (3) requested need of a device due to one or more of the situational conditions below. KES will distribute one laptop device per household for identified student use only. Selection guidelines to prioritize laptop distribution of KES’ limited supply of chromebook devices are as follows:

1. Multi-sibling families (four or more children in 1 household) make it difficult for accessibility when doing distance learning at home
2. Multi-sibling families (three or more children in 1 household) make it difficult for accessibility when doing distance learning at home
3. Twin siblings may find difficulty in participating in distance learning class meetups as they are in the same grade level and may have activities occurring at the same time

If you are interested in the program and haven't already requested to be placed on the school waitlist, please call the KES school office by Monday, August 10. Mahalo!
