Dear Sac City Unified Parents and Families:
Thank you again for your continued patience as we navigate through this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis. We realize that our students have had a major disruption in their educational process. We appreciate your support and patience while we work through these uncertain times together.

We will deploy one sanitized and used Chromebook to every family who does not have access to a device at home for remote online learning opportunities. If your student(s) already has access to a device at home, we ask that you not pick up a Chromebook as our distance learning program will be supported on any computer operating system.
Please understand that as of Wednesday morning, April 8th, we had over 135 requests for Chromebooks. We currently only have access to 110 Chromebooks. Thank you for your patience as we attempt to meet everyone’s requests, which may or may not be able to occur on April 10th.
These Chromebooks are used, and have been in daily use by students in the classrooms for at least two years. The replacement cost is $325.00 per Chromebook and $25.00 per adapter. It is expected that they will be returned to Crocker/Riverside on June 12, 2020. More details to follow on the return process.
When picking up your student’s Chromebook, please:
Parents/Guardians/Those Listed as Emergency Contacts: Bring an ID and have your student’s name and school ID or ID number available.
Drivers: Remain in your vehicles and wait patiently to be served for safety and social distancing.
Walkers: If you must walk, please keep and adhere to the 6-foot distance rule as you approach the check-out station.
Those checking out the device must review our Annual Parent and Student Rights Notification and Standards of Behavior, and sign the Student Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement (Spanish Version – needs to be downloaded and attached)
We realize internet / Wi-Fi connectivity at home will be essential to the distance learning experience. More information for free and affordable internet service for our community can be found at: https://internetessentials.com/
