Update on Computer Distribution

e-Connections Post

This Friday and Saturday, Sac City Unified will distribute approximately 8,600 additional computers to our students. On April 3, Sac City Unified distributed approximately 3,500 computers to students.

Soon after our school closure began, Sac City Unified rush-ordered 20,000 laptops for our students but, like many other districts, we are still waiting for shipments of them to arrive. We will continue to distribute computers from our current inventory as we wait for shipments of new computers to arrive.

We will first distribute one (1) computer per family of elementary (K-6) students. As we receive additional shipments of computers, we will deploy to middle school and high school students.

Once our entire shipment of 20,000 computers arrive, we ultimately expect to provide each of our students who requested one and from all grade levels with a computer.

When and where to pick up a computer

Below is a list of sites and dates for computer pick up. If your K-6 student needs a computer and the school is not listed below, please contact your student’s teacher or principal.

Pick up is for K-6 students only and one computer per family. Students must visit their school of enrollment to pick up a computer.  

Some secondary schools are listed below to provide their students with a make up day should they have been unable to pick up computers on the first day of the school’s distribution. Otherwise only K-6 students may pick up. These students should have received communication from their school site. 

Please note: Many school sites have specific time blocks for different grades. Please check your email and/or look for a communication from your school site for detailed information about these time blocks, as well as instructions and necessary information for pick up.

Can I participate in distance learning without a computer?

Yes! Our plan is a hybrid plan, because we know that many students might not have access to electronic and internet resources to participate in online learning. This means that instruction could be conducted online, or by conference calls, phone, textbooks, other school materials, and assigned work. This is why we can begin our effort on April 13 regardless of whether our students have a computer or not. We can’t afford one more day of lost instruction.

Will all students receive computers before April 13?

Unfortunately, we will not complete the distribution of computers to all students before April 13. Sac City Unified rush-ordered 20,000 laptops for our students early but, like many other districts, we are still waiting for shipments of them to arrive. As schools, organizations, and individuals all ordered computers simultaneously, vendors are dealing with massive shipping delays because of COVID-19. This is just the state of the world right now and we are seeing delays on orders in almost every industry.

Safety Guidelines

Please note that in order to ensure safety the District continues to take preventative steps to keep staff and community healthy.  School sites with any staff on campus are disinfected on a nightly basis.

  • All Physical Distancing Guidelines need to be adhered to via a drive through / Walk up  process
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick (remain home for 72 hours after symptoms have resided).
  • If possible, avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough.
  • Sneeze into a tissue then throw the tissue away in the trash. Wash your hands afterward.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Get a flu shot.
