Hello Wayne Local VLA Families,

If you have a Chromebook for your student from the Spring, we need to collect it and update it for your student.  Even if you need a Chromebook for your child who is learning through VLA for the upcoming school year, we ask you to return your Chromebook to Waynesville Middle School.  Please bring the Chromebook(s) marked in a plastic bag with your child’s name on it.  They can be dropped off to Karyn Phillips (WMS principal)  or Janine Brown (WMS administrative assistant) during school hours ASAP.  Thank you for your assistance!  

To check-out an updated Chromebook, please fill out the Google Form:

Some families have requested a Chromebook for VLA either through email or the initial survey from the district.  We have your names, but if you wouldn’t mind, please fill out the second survey (linked above) to update or confirm your request.  Thank you!

To pick up a requested Chromebook for the upcoming semester, please mark your calendar for: 

Wednesday, September 2      8 am - 3 pm

Waynesville Middle School outside the Main Entrance (shine)

Waynesville Middle School lobby (rain)
