- BYOD UPDATE: We will be transitioning from the BYOD program that was previously in place for Grades 4 – 8. The 2018-19 school year will begin with the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program in place for students who already own devices, but students who don’t own devices will not be asked to purchase them. By late fall, student devices will be provided by Hillcrest. This change will enable more consistent technology compatibility, upgrades and support for our students. Students will have access to devices as needed during the school day, and there will be a checkout procedure when devices are needed outside school hours.
