Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

Thank you for all the emails! There will be enough Chromebooks for all students that NEED to check one out. Please send your student to the library with their current Mt. Nebo ID Card when they want to check out a Chromebook. Here are a few guidelines that will make the process easier:

1- I will be at the school from 7:30 am – 3:10 pm only. Please come at the time assigned to you by the administration.

2- Please make sure the student is with you and that they have their student ID card available.

3- Students may also check out a book to read when they come.

4- Last names starting with letters A- F: Tuesday 8 am – 9:30 am

5 – Last names starting with letters G – L: Tuesday 9:45 am – 11:15 am

6 – Last names starting with M – R: Tuesday 11:30 am– 1:00 pm

7 – Last names starting with S – Z: Tuesday 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

****We have created this schedule to adhere to social distancing, but if you are not able to come to the above time, come when you can.

Internet Essentials Free to New Customers:
As announced yesterday, it’s even easier for low-income families who live in a Comcast service area to sign-up for Internet Essentials, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. New customers will receive 60 days of complimentary Internet Essentials service, which is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month. Additionally, for all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, the speed of the program’s Internet service was increased to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream. That increase will go into effect for no additional fee and it will become the new base speed for the program going forward.
