"Dear incoming Higgins Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th graders & families:
In just a few short months we will be moving into our new state-of- the-art Higgins Middle School. One aspect of the new school that we are especially excited about is the 1:1 Chromebook Initiative. Every student at Higgins Middle School will be issued a Chromebook to use at school and at home.
This Chromebook, along with the other technology at Higgins, will help students develop the skills and competencies they will need to succeed in the 21 st century. It will allow for collaboration between students, school, and the community, creating learners who can truly learn anything, anytime, anywhere.
Higgins Middle School will be self-insuring these Chromebooks, and $20 per student ($40 family cap) will ensure against theft, accidental damage, etc…
We will be issuing Chromebooks to students during orientation sessions in August. There are four sessions scheduled: two each on August 11 th and August 16 th . More information regarding these orientations will be coming to you over the summer. In the meantime, please visit the following website starting July 1 to pre-register
