Dayton will be distributing Chromebooks to families on Wednesday, April 1st from ​2:00pm until 5:30pm.

  • ​We will be practicing social distancing at all times. 
  • We will be outside by the cafeteria
  • Parents/guardians will need to fill out a form. 
  • Please stay 6 feet apart. 
  • Please be patient.

If you don't have a device at home for your student to use for distance learning, this is the time to come to Dayton and pick-up a device.  Please join us sometime between 2:00pm and 5:30pm.
