Important information for all students:
Do you have a remote learning device? A chromebook is not necessary. Any device - laptop, desktop, tablet - with access to the internet will work as long as you can connect to an internet browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. We would not recommend using a smartphone. Here are directions for logging into your own account on a personal device or a district chromebook. Direcciones para ingresando a TU PROPIA cuenta en espanol!
If you have already requested a device, you will receive a personal communication telling you where and when to pick up your device on Monday, March 30. If you do not have a device as listed above, you can request a device from the district. To request a device for your child please call (720) 972-5555 and leave a voicemail or email: Adams12RemoteLearning@adams12.org.
Parents can come to one of the five district comprehensive high schools - Horizon, Legacy, Mountain Range, Northglenn or Thornton High School - to be assigned a device through a drive-thru or walk up process. Devices will be distributed on Tuesday, March 31 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families must sign for the devices when picking one up. All devices will need to be returned to the district.
