FCPSOn Laptop Pickup (8th GRADE ONLY)

August 09, 2018

Lanier Middle is now an official FCPSOn Middle School in FCPS

FCPSOn extends student learning and ensures that students have equal opportunity to develop Portrait of a Graduate attributes by providing them with opportunities to control the time, place, path, and pace of their learning through meaningful learning experiences. With this, every student will need a laptop to access instructional material/content frequently. You will be provided an FCPSOn issued device or you can provide your own. The FCPSOn device permission form should be read and reviewed to understand the acceptable and responsible use of the FCPS laptop. This form does not need to be turned in if you are using a school laptop. The FCPSOn form also states the financial responsibility of the families should something happen to the FCPS device. By accepting to use the FCPS laptop during the school year, you automatically agree to the terms should there be damage to the device not covered by FCPS.

If using your own personal device in place of a FCPS issued device, please complete and return the second page of the FCPSOn permission form to indicate that you are using your own device. Your personal device must have a keyboard and be compatible with Google Apps for Education and Microsoft Office. Smartphones are not an acceptable substitute.  

Laptop Pickup

All students will be required to submit the FCPSon forms and bring the approved sleeve for the HP Probook on the supply list before picking up their FCPS computer.

All 8th grade students can pick up their FCPSOn issued laptop in the Makerspace (Room 153) on these dates and times: 

  • Friday, August 17th  from 8 am - 2 pm
