Union Pleasant Elementary School

  • Interested in signing out a laptop cart?
     
    Once you have reserved your cart, it is your responsibility to pick it up and return it at the end of your reserved time.  Please do not forget to make sure that all of the laptops are plugged in inside the cart and that the whole cart is plugged into the wall.  Lastly, flip the switch on the back of the cart to begin charging the computers.  It is very important that you remember to charge them for the next person that uses them. 
     
    When you take a cart, you are reserving the entire set of laptops, not just one or two.  We are trying to keep the carts full with the entire set of netbooks.
     
    Thanks!
