Chromebook Troubleshooting

If students have issues connecting their Chromebooks, please have them do this:

  1. Turn off the Chromebook (holding the power button is okay)
  2. Turn the Chromebook back on.
  3. Connect to your home WiFi.
  4. You should see a screen that says “Sign in to your Chromebook”. Leave the Chromebook on this screen for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Restart the Chromebook again.

Chromebooks Available

Chromebooks are available for families who do not have access to technology. Please look at your child’s school blog for more information. To date, we are allowing each family to sign out one Chromebook. Chromebooks must be returned on the first day back after the shutdown.

Chromebooks have been handed out at Miller, Geer Park, Salina Intermediate, Dearborn High, Woodworth, Nowlin, Long, and Becker. Additional schools will be allowing families to sign out a Chromebook this Thursday and Friday.

Chief Haddad Meets with Fordson Students

Chief Haddad met with Mrs. Rana Alaouie and Fordson Honor students on January 7th.  Chief Haddad posted pictures from this meeting and the following:  “These young women are Honor students from Fordson HIgh School.  They came prepared to discuss the impact of the opioid crisis threatening our community, the consequences of distracted driving for young drivers, the emergence of technology in police work and the critical need for engagement in public service including law enforcement.  If these Tractors represent a look into the future, we are going to be fine. Moral courage, superb intellect, concern for others and commitment for advancing good order of city were evident today. Well done ladies! I am proud of each of you!”
