Access to Technology

​Sat. March 28

Thank you to all the families that have requested technology for your child(ren). We are in the process of verifying all the requests and getting the technology ready for our students. We will be contacting families in the near future about the pick up of devices. We want to ensure the safety of our community and this means a very controlled and measured distribution method over the next little while. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.

During school closures the Ministry of Education and the GECDSB are providing online resources which enables students at every grade level to continue learning while away from school. These resources can be found on the Board website at A link to the Ministry’s online portal, is also available at

To ensure that all students can access these resources the Board will be lending out technology to those students that do not have access to computing devices in their homes. This is not meant to augment or increase the amount of technology in homes and is only for students that do not have access to any devices. Those families that qualify will be eligible for one device per household. Please visit the Board website and fill out the Request for Technology form (link listed, below). This form will be available on Wednesday, March 25th. If you are unable to access this form please call your school and leave a message for the school Principal. This message should include the name of the student, grade level, if you have access to internet at home and your contact information.

The request for technology form and phone calls will be accepted until 2pm on Friday, March 27th. The following week you will be contacted to make arrangements for pick up of devices.
