iPad Distribution 2019/2020 (rising 4th & 7th)

Wow! Summer is in full swing! It is hard to believe that it is July already. The 2018-2019 school year is right around the corner and we need to begin planning for how rising 4th and 7th graders and all new students will receive their iPads for the fall. Join us on one of the deployment dates for students to come to NRCA, receive their iPad, and begin to learn to use them prior to the opening of school. Each parent and student must attend together and will go through a brief information session along with stations that will provide a step by step process of receiving, protecting and setting up their new iPads. The entire process will take a little over one hour. Students who will receive an iPad at one of these deployments must be accompanied by a parent to receive their iPad.

Tuesday, August 6th and Thursday, August 8th 

  • 9:00, 10:30, 6:00 & 7:30
  • Only need to attend 1 session

To sign-up for a deployment session please click on the Sign-Up button.  Each session will be limited to a certain number of students so that we can provide the assistance needed for the process to run smoothly.

All rising 4th graders and new students will need an Apple ID set-up prior to arriving at NRCA. Please complete this process prior to arriving at NRCA on August 7th or August 9th. Due to the limited storage provided for free in iCloud, we have found that using a new Apple ID with the school-issued iPad is most effective.

To create an Apple ID https://appleid.apple.com/account#!&page=create.
Parents can also create and/or connect their student’s Apple ID to a family Apple ID via Family Sharing, more info can be found here https://support.apple.com/en-us/ht201060.  Rising 7th graders can use the same Apple ID that they used last year.

If your student was a 4th or 5th grader last year and had an iPad that they kept in their homeroom, then their iPad will be in their new 5th or 6th grade Homeroom on the first day of school.

Thanks!
