Dear Parents and Students of John Burroughs Middle School,

This is an important update on the Responsible Use Policy (RUP) Forms. The district requires all students and parents to complete the RUP forms prior to checking out the iPad. This form was given to parents stapled in the parent packet at the start of the school year.

This is a reminder to all students who have not turned in their RUP paperwork to please make sure to turn in your signed paperwork to your homeroom teacher by tomorrow, Friday, September 22nd. Without the signed paperwork, students will not be issued iPads.
