Laptop Distribution for 2021-2022

All students are encouraged to pickup their FCPSOn laptop before the 1st day of school.

Parents, you are welcome to join your child, but are not required to accompany your student. If you have a laptop from a different FCPS school, please arrange to return to that school before picking up your new SLHS laptop.  If you cannot, then you must bring your old laptop with you when you come to pick up your SLHS laptop.

When you arrive at the school, please make sure you are wearing a mask and enter via Door 1.  Distribution will take place in the Cafeteria. You will be issued your FCPSOn laptop and perform a quick series of checks before you leave.  Directions will be provided for you.  If you run into any issues, staff will be on hand to assist.
