Currently, we are waiting on approximately 40 laptops to return from repair downtown. Our GCS Tech Services department is waiting for parts from Lenovo to be able to repair those laptops. ALL of our current repairs are waiting for parts from the manufacturer.
Due to our increased enrollment this year, I do not have enough loaners to give to students at this time but I hope to have some soon. I will return laptops as soon as I am able to or assign loaner laptops to students as soon as I receive some additional loaner laptops from GCS.
Loaner availability varies daily, depending on how many laptops are in repair, how many come back and my own availability. Laptops management is only one aspect of my work here at school. I have many other responsibilities that demand my time, too.
In the meantime, students without laptops will work with shoulder buddies or with their classroom teachers to modify work while we try to address the shortage.
Thank you for your patience in this matter.
