A Letter for Parents
Horry County Schools Informational Technology Services strives to ensure all students have access to the resources and devices needed to be academically successful. As a result of school closures, we are committed to providing a Personalized Digital Learning (PDL) device to all students in grades 3-12. Please read the following information:
Parents/guardians will be allowed to pick up digital devices at the school(s) where their student(s) attend. Pick up times will be as follows:
Device Distribution Schedule
Wednesday, March 18thth - 7:00 am – 1:00 pm
Thursday, March 19th - 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Friday, March 20thth - 8:00 am – 11:00 am
Parents/guardians will need to present their driver’s license or another form of identification. Otherwise, all HCS buildings will be closed to the public.
Parents/guardians will be required to sign a Parent Permission/Usage Form, if they have not already done so, when they pick up the digital device.
Parents/guardians will have the option to pay a reduced technology fee of $12, which will provide limited coverage for any damage to the device while it is being used at home.
