****** QUESTIONS OR NEED ASSISTANCE ******

If you have questions regarding the laptop distribution please contact the Office of Digital Learning and Innovation at: Phone: 732-751-2480 ext. 3807 or laptopdistribution@howell.k12.nj.us.


****** DISTRIBUTION DATES AND PREFERRED TIMES ******

All rising 6th – 8th grade students will pick up their assigned laptop at their attending school location. To minimize long lines and to drastically reduce your wait time, preferred dates and times have been established for students to pick up the laptop based on school and position in the alphabet. If the preferred date/time is not convenient, you may come any time during the deployment, as long as it is during one of the two dates that the deployment team will be at your child’s attending school location distributing the laptops. REMINDER: Evening distributions can be lengthy; therefore, it is suggested that you come during your assigned day time slot.
