ipad chromebook return june 2022

Dear District 58 Families,

Please read the following instructions regarding returning district-issued iPads, Chromebooks and accessories.

Grades K-6

District 58 students in grades K-6 will return their district-issued iPads and iPad accessories to school on Monday, June 6

Please follow the below steps and ensure your child turns in his or her iPad, iPad case and charger (block and cable) on time.

1. Back up data (optional). All student data on 1:1 iPads will be permanently deleted this summer. Please back up any content you want to preserve on your child’s device before turning it in. While it is optional to back up content, it is the only way to save the work your child has produced on his or her device. Need help? Check out these helpful resources:

2. Charge your iPad completely.

3. Cover your iPad with the District-issued iPad case. Please remove your personal iPad case, if you have one.

4. Submit your child’s iPad, iPad case and charger to his or her classroom teacher!

Grade 7

Students in grade 7 who are already registered for next school year may keep their district-issued Chromebooks over the summer. 

Students in grade 7 who have not registered yet and/or who will not be returning to District 58 next school year should turn in their Chromebooks and chargers via the same schedule as eighth graders below.

Grade 8

Students in grade 8 should return their district-issued Chromebooks via the following schedule:

  • O’Neill: Homebase class on Monday, June 6
  • Herrick: Reading class on Friday, June 3

For Chromebooks, backing up content is not necessary. However, eighth grade students and other students leaving the District may be interested in preserving some of their content, as they will lose access to their District 58 accounts over the summer. Here is some information on how to transfer Google Data to a personal account. 

Note on Summer School:

Students participating in Summer School should follow the above procedures for turning in their device. Students in Summer School Session I will get their device back on the last day of school to use during Summer School. Students participating in Summer School Sessions II and III will receive an iPad when their session begins.

If you have any questions regarding the iPad return process, please contact our Technology Office at 630-719-2768.

Thank you.
