iPad Distribution and Orientation
Attention parents and guardians of 7th and 8th graders!
iPad orientation sessions will be held on Monday evening, September 16th for 7th grade and Tuesday evening, September 17th for 8th grade.
We will begin both sessions at 6:30 pm in the CEMS Cafetorium. Parents or guardians must attend an orientation session in order for their students to use their MLTI iPads - at school or at home. Please notify the main office as soon as possible if you are unable to attend the correct session.
During the orientation we will review the use and care of the iPads, discuss student responsibilities, and personalize student Apple ID's. This final step is crucial, as Apple requires that parents/guardians complete the process of setting up an Apple ID before students can use the device. Please be prepared to access your personal email accounts to retrieve a verification email.
To expedite the distribution of these iPads to our 7th and 8th grade students, please log in to the PowerSchool Portal
to complete the iPad forms and purchase the necessary insurance. Be sure to print the confirmation of coverage document.
The Cape Elizabeth District Technology Coordinator, CEMS Computer Technicians, and CEMS Library & Instructional Technology Specialists will be leading the orientations. We hope to have an Apple Engineer available to provide support and answer questions.
We look forward to seeing you!
