Pittsburgh Public Faculties has four tools return drop-off factors

Pittsburgh Public School students should return their district-issued devices to the school by Tuesday, but there will also be select times at four drop-off points by June 18.

Merecedes Williams, PPS media manager, said the district is putting together laptops, iPads, hotpots and chargers at the end of the school year that will “require redesign and system updates for the 2021-2022 school year.”

This software work will be done over the summer.

On June 12, 13, 16, 17 and 18, families have the opportunity to drop off their belongings at one of four locations from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“The weekend hours are designed to accommodate working families during non-traditional school hours,” said Williams.

The websites include:

• Pittsburgh Carrick High School, 125 Parkfield St.

• Pittsburgh Obama, 515 North Highland Ave.

• Pittsburgh King, 50 Montgomery Place

• Pittsburgh Langley, 2940 Sheraden Blvd.

Students participating in district-sponsored summer learning programs like Summer BOOST or the Extended School Year can keep their laptops and other devices until they are finished.

Williams also said that Kindergarten through 11th grade students with designated Assistive Technology (AT) devices and not participating in a summer program will be able to keep their device until their AT device replacement on August 3.

This event will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Program for Students with Exceptionalities (PSE) office at Oliver Citywide Academy, 2323 Brighton Road.

Seniors must return laptops, chargers, and other devices prior to graduation.

If a device is lost, parents should contact the school. Defective devices can be returned free of charge, Williams said.
