BCPS laptop Info Page

Hereford MS Laptop Information page- 

All HMS students will be receiving a laptop to use for the 2017-18 school year.
We plan to pass out laptops as soon as the 2nd week of school.

Before a student can receive the BCPS laptop, the following must be done:

1. Grade 6, 7, and 8 parents ALL must sign an annual agreement.
Your child will be given the agreement to bring home on September 5th.
Please sign and have your child return to school as soon as possible.
Do not take the agreement apart.  Your child will receive the yellow duplicate when getting her/his laptop.
