School Supplies & Books
The most important thing for families to know about School Supplies is that every student is required to have: 1) headphones with a microphone, and 2) a printer at home.
Most students already have headphones and new ones are not needed. Ideally, headphones should have a built-in microphone and a regular headphone jack. The built-in mic allows multiple people to use Zoom without feedback.
We recognize that having a printer at home will be a change for some families. A printer at home allows teachers to design screen-free assignments, especially in the event of distance learning. Of course, there will be times the printer runs out of ink or just doesn’t cooperate, and teachers will always provide workarounds for students in these situations. Any kind of printer is acceptable as long as the student can connect to it from their school laptop or someone else at home can print things for them.
