Dear Parents & Guardians,

As the Carmel School District moves toward being a 1:1 technology district, we are having laptop distribution for grades 1-4 during the week of August 16-19. First grade laptops will not be available until Tuesday, August 17. Kindergarten laptops will be distributed at a later date. 

If your child already has a District-issued laptop in his/her possession, there is no need to come to the school.  Your child will NOT be issued another computer.  This distribution is only for the children that do not already have a District-issued laptop in their possession.  

You can come to Matthew Paterson Elementary to pick up your laptop according to the schedule below.  Please do your absolute best to adhere to the schedule below.  We will be distributing the laptops at certain times based on the first letter of your child’s last name.
