Just be smart about it.
That was the theme of a presentation to parents and students during a 1-to-1 laptop informational meeting at Hastings High School Tuesday.
In September, the Hastings Board of Education approved purchasing more than 900 MacBook Air laptop computers so every student in the high school can have a laptop to use during the school year.
On Tuesday, high school principal Jay Opperman spoke with more than 250 students and parents in the high school auditorium about the new laptop program and what will be expected of both students and parents.
Within the next few months, all of the just more than 1,000 students at HHS will each receive a MacBook Air laptop computer with their name on it in a case with a power cord.
“It’s not theirs to own,” Opperman said. “They do have to give it back when they’re done being a student here.”
