Device Damage Waiver Program
Where does my student go for help with the laptop?
Students can go to the iLearn Service Center, located in room F218, for any repair needs.
What if our family does not have Internet access?
The Pattonville High School library will continue to be open until 7:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday. Students can also take advantage of business and community organizations which have provided wireless "hotspots" for student Internet access, such as any St. Louis County Public Libraries.
What if my student misuses the laptop at home or school?
Any violation of the student behavior guide and acceptable use policy, including uses of technology, will be dealt with accordingly. For severe cases of student misuse it is possible to use sanctions on student devices, but those sanctions can also hinder a student's access to academic materials and have unintended consequences. Contact the student's principal for inquiries into student discipline.
What if my student's laptop is stolen?
You must get a police report from the municipality where the device was stolen and then contact the iLearn Service Center in F218 at the high school.
