Student Laptop Distribution is Thursday, August 15th

Welcome back! We are excited to start the school year and are anxiously awaiting to see the boys again in the classrooms and hallways. Tomorrow is an exciting day for all of us!

We wanted to let you know that your son will be receiving his PDS laptop on Thursday, August 15th. Please help him to remember to bring his laptop bag (with the sleeve) to school Thursday morning. The computer has the same content filter as last year. The technology department will review the Responsible Use Policy on Friday with your son.  Please look for the envelope containing these documents Friday afternoon. 

If you have any questions, please email me at msmith@pdsmemphis.org.  

Thank you.
