The health and safety of our students, staff and visitors is paramount, and we are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19. We are adhering to guidance from the local health officials, the Texas Department of Health & Human Services and the Center of Disease Control (CDC). With information changing daily, we encourage families to stay up to date on information about COVID-19. Below you will find helpful resources and update information:

  • WHAT TO DROP OFF:

    • iPad and case that was originally issued.
    • Apple iPad charger (brick and cord) that was originally issued. An iPhone brick will not be accepted, nor will we accept any other brands.


    HOW TO MAKE iPAD DROP OFF FASTER:

    • Have your child(s) name in the dashboard, either with a car tag or written on a piece of paper.
    • Bring your own pen or pencil (you will only sign if there is a problem).
    • Bring the iPad charged
    • Follow iPad Setting instructions below.

    Erase all Content and Settings Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings


    WHAT IF I HAVE LOST SOMETHING OR HAVE BROKEN THE iPAD?

    This is the part of the job that we do not enjoy but at the same time we have to be diligent with NBISD property and inventory. We will NOT be collecting money onsite during iPad drop off, however, you will be asked to sign our inventory checklist if you do not have all hardware or are turning in a damaged iPad. Once drop-off is complete, you will be billed for any outstanding claims. Below are the itemized costs to expect if you end up with a claim.


    iPad - $294.00
    Case - $22.00
    iPad Brick - $17.50
    iPad Cord - $17.50
    Damaged (first claim with protection plan) - $0.00
    Damaged (second claim with protection plan) - $50.00
    Damaged (without protection plan) – Cost of repair


    If you need help navigating the iPad settings, or have questions specifically about iPad drop off, please do not hesitate to ask.
