SWIFT CREEK CHROMEBOOK DISTRIBUTION
Students Returning to Brick and Mortar on Jan. 20, 2021 can bring in their
current LCS Device and/or Student Chromebook Agreement to the front office for drop-off between 8:30AM and 4PM.
Your student will pick up their LCS Chromebook from the
Media Center on Wednesday, Jan. 20.
All other Digital Academy students who still need a Chromebook must contact Sandy Clary (414-2660 / email@example.com) to set an appointment to pick up their Chromebook.
These devices are configured specifically for Leon County Schools to allow for academic monitoring, State testing, assessment security, a consistent educational platform, and the management and repair of the devices.
Swift Creek Tech Support will no longer troubleshoot or support any non-LCS device.
To Get the Most Out of Your Chromebook
To get the most out of your new Chromebook, it is recommended that you install the office apps - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxSckSgcbDw
(Make sure that after it installs, you open Microsoft Word so that your OneDrive accounts populate, then you can move onto the next step, associating it by default)

How to get into Canvas without going through CLASSLINK.
On the right side that says "Log In to Your School's Canvas Account." Type - Leon County Schools - Students/Teachers
It will automatically redirect your Canvas Dashboard.
This is, by far, the most challenging year our teachers have faced with the addition of Canvas, block scheduling and the hybrid instructional model. Our teachers, of course, have met the challenges put before them because they are professional educators and they love and care deeply for each student they are privileged to serve. Our SCMS PTSO asked each of our teachers to create a “favorites” list so parents/students/community members, if they wished, could shower them with a little bit of love and kindness throughout the school year. I also want to add that a heartfelt, encouraging note is ALWAYS the most appreciated “gift” to a teacher. Please click the link below for a peek into what brings a smile to our teachers’ faces.
In addition, SCMS has a LEADER OF THE PACK recognition for any adult on our campus who has demonstrated: respect, responsibility, helpfulness, positive attitude, etc. This nomination form has also been provided for you. You can send this form back to me, Sue Rishell, at email@example.com and the form will be part of a weekly drawing. Thank you for your consideration in supporting and encouraging the most exceptional professional educators I have ever had the privilege to learn beside!
Help the PTSO make SCMS students, teachers, and our school SMILE!
