LCTA PTA eROAR, Preparing for Back to School!

Chromebooks / Tablets

If you were not able to pick up your tablet or chromebook on 8/31, the make-up day is this Friday, 9/4 from 8am - 12pm at GW Middle School. This is for students in grades K-3 only and newly enrolled students in any grade. 

If your student is a returning fourth or fifth grader and needs a device, please complete the chromebook request form. Even if you do not currently have a chromebook in your possession, returning 4th/ 5th graders will still need to go through the Helpdesk to secure a device. 

The Helpdesk can be reached at:

And: They live up to their name!  They are indeed helpful (and responsive). 

If you are unable to pick up your device on 8/31 or 9/4, please contact the school’s front office. 

Technology Information

See the tech training videos ACPS has produced to make sure you and your child are familiar with how to access class and other vital technology information that is key to your child’s success this semester.

First Day of School & “Walk-the-Block!”, Tuesday, September 8

Tuesday September 8 is “Alexandria Walk the Block” sponsored by Safe Routes to School, Alexandria Moves, Inova Alexandria Hospital, Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, Running Brooke, and Alexandria City Parks & Rec. The idea is for students and families to get outside to "walk the block" around their neighborhood before logging on to Virtual Plus+ the first day of school. This will encourage the healthy habit of getting out for a walk on school days!  Please Join us!
