iPads Coming to WHMS, EHMS & BHMS
Have you heard? Each sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade middle school student will be receiving an iPad as a part of our One to World initiative (www.bloomfield.org/onetoworld). As part of the process of issuing the iPads to students, we have an informational parent packet. The parent packet includes information that provides a rationale for the iPads, and importantly, the necessary permission forms for your child to receive their iPad and Gmail account (see attached document below). The signature pages for the permission forms can be found on p. 9 (iPad) and p. 10 (Gmail account). We are asking that parents return their permission forms by Friday, November 7. Students will be turning in their forms to their grade-level teachers.
If you have additional questions after reviewing the parent packet, please join us at any one of our upcoming parent iPad meetings (West Hills on November 10 at 7pm, East Hills on November 11 at 7pm, or Bloomfield Hills Middle on November 12 at 7pm) where we will give an overview of the program and answer any questions. To help us prepare for our parent meetings, feel free to submit a question at anytime via our One to World web page on our district site at http://www.bloomfield.org/parents-students/one-to-world/index.aspx
If needed, hard copies of the iPad Parent Packet are available at each school in the main office. Students and families can also request packets through the grade-level classroom teachers.

You may not have a dog at school.
Not in the front.
