UPDATE: Friday, Aug. 21 - All remaining device requests will be delivered directly to the school for parent pickup. Parents will be notified when the device is ready.
Mansfield ISD announced an updated plan to deliver devices directly to students' homes during Tuesday night’s called board meeting.
Previously, new pickup locations and times were established, but the district decided to move from in-person pickup to a home delivery service to eliminate the need to wait in line for a device. All remaining devices will be delivered using this process.
Instead of waiting in line, parents will now complete the Device Request Form indicating whether a student still needs a device. The devices will be delivered to the home address indicated on the student’s registration.
Deliveries will be made from Aug. 13 through Aug. 16 using proper social distancing to ensure the safety of families and staff. Families will receive a phone call to confirm their delivery window, and a signature will be required.
As a reminder, students do not need to use a district-owned device. Any device with an internet connection can be used to access all programs and apps needed for virtual learning. Any students who are unable to get a device before the start of school on Wednesday, Aug. 12 will not be penalized.
