I left my iPad at Home. Now what? If students leave their iPad at home, they are responsible for getting the course work completed as if they had their iPad present. If a student repeatedly leaves their iPad at home, they will lose at home privileges of the iPad and will have to leave their iPads in school.
My iPad is Undergoing Repairs. Can I get a loaner? A loaner device may be issued to students when they leave their iPads for repair at the following locations: High School Media Center- Mrs. Kakaty Middle School Media Center- Mrs. Novak or Mrs. Scerbo
Note: There may be a delay in getting an iPad should the school not have enough to loan. Please see the "Lost/Damaged/Stolen" section of this website for further details.
Can I Charge my iPad at school? iPads must be brought to school each day in a fully charged condition. Students need to charge their iPads each evening (but not overnight). Repeat violations will result in students losing at home privileges.
Can I set my Screen Savers/Background to whatever I want? Inappropriate media may not be used as a screensaver or background photo. Inappropriate media includes, but is not limited to, the presence of guns, weapons, pornographic materials, inappropriate language, tobacco, alcohol, drug, gang related symbols or pictures and will result in disciplinary actions.
Sound, Music, Games, or Programs Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from the teacher for instructional purposes. Music is allowed on the iPad for educational purposes only and should be used at the discretion of the teacher. Internet games are not allowed on the iPads. All software/apps must be school approved and installed by Ramsey School District staff. Data storage will be managed through apps pre-loaded on the iPad.

Students are permitted to set up wireless networks on their iPads for connection outside of school, however, all regulations pertaining to appropriate school use still apply.
