Veneta Elementary School

Lisa Leatham, Principal


Chromebook ImageThank you to the many parents who attended our Chromebook check-in night on Monday.  We were able to get almost 60% of them turned it at this time.  We still have over 100 Chromebooks out at these grade levels that we need to get returned ASAP, before we move on to upper grades (reminder this does NOT include OPTIONS or CDL students–they will turn in later).

Here is the next opportunity to meet with our tech folks, and get your Chromebook turned in for your Kinder-2nd grade student.  The turn-in times will be from 7:30-8:30 at the following schools, on the following days.  If you can bring the student device check-in form (click here)  filled out when you arrive at your check-in time, it will make things go quicker.  The forms will also be available on site.


Elmira Elementary- Library:

Tomorrow: 5/20 7:30-8:30 AM

Friday: 5/21 7:30-8:30 AM

Tuesday: 5/25 7:30-8:30 AM

Veneta Elementary- Cafeteria:

Wednesday: 5/26 7:30-8:30 AM

Thursday: 5/27 7:30-8:30 AM

Friday: 5/28 7:30-8:30 AM

We ask that parents please accompany the Chromebook (if at all possible), and not simply send it inside their student’s backpack.  Please bring the charger, and if you have a “hot-spot,” please return that as well.

We will have information on turn-in dates for upper grades very soon!  Thank you for your help!

Have you signed your incoming kindergarten student up for KITS? It is an AMAZING program that helps our students and families prepare for school!
KITS Enrollment forms have been mailed out to ALL families who have expressed interest! If you have not received one and would like more information, please call us!
Enrollment is limited, so please return your paperwork ASAP to either Elmira Elementary or Veneta Elementary.

The district is about to begin the process of having students return their Chromebooks (including chargers and hotspots).  We are beginning with ALL Kinder-2nd grade students from EES and VES on May 17th (Not OPTIONS students).  The rest of the schedule is tentative, however our proposed timeline is below.  As each grade level gets fully organized, we will get the information out.

3rd-5th grade:  Beginning week of June 1st

6th -8th grade:  Beginning week of June 1st

12th grade:  June 8th/9th

9th-11th grade:  Beginning week of June 15th

OPTIONS:  Beginning week of June 15th.


As the flyer above describes, the turn-in for K-2nd grade students will be from 2:00-7:00 PM on May 17th AT VES, and you can reserve your timeslot by signing up here.  If your chromebook is damaged, please do not wait until check-in.  In addition, please bring your device to the check-in, fully “charged.”

Finally, if you can bring the student device check-in form (click here)  filled out when you arrive at your check-in time, it will make things go quicker.  The forms will also be available on site.
