A Message from Ben Lippen Technology

May 8, 2019 Upper School News

Good Morning Families,

I would like to start by saying “Thank You” for another year of support from our Ben Lippen families.  Without our families, Ben Lippen School would not be the institution the Lord has created it to be. For such a time as this, we are divinely appointed as the Lord’s stewards of Ben Lippen School.

With these blessings in mind, Ben Lippen will be issuing new iPads to our 6th through 12th-grade students for the 2019-2020 school year.  In order to facilitate this process, I ask that you work with your student(s) to prepare to return their Ben Lippen issued iPad.  Each student must begin the process by emailing any items on their iPad they wish to keep to their email address. They will be able to retrieve these items when the new technology is issued prior to the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.  Additional information will be sent out regarding iPad distribution as this time approaches.

Please be aware of the fees for damaged or lost items. The replacement cost of the iPad is $350.00. Damaged iPads will be assessed a fee of $75.00 unless they are in the Maintenance Program.  If your student does not return the issued charger or sync cable, there will be a $20.00 charge for each of these items. There is a $25.00 charge for any iPad turned in that is excessively dirty.  These fees must be paid before the last day of school on Wednesday, May 22nd, so as to not delay student processing for graduation or the upcoming school year.

Also, there are no purchase options available.

iPad collection will begin with our Seniors in my office in the High School Library:

Wednesday, May 15th – 8 am – 3:15 pm

Thursday, May 16 – 12:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Friday May 17 – 12:00 pm – 3:15 pm

I will begin collection of 9th through 11th graders in my office in the High School Library:     

Monday May 20th – 8:30 am – 11:00 am & 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm.

Tuesday the 21st – 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Wednesday the 22nd –  8:00 am – 12:30 pm

This is the last available time to return issued technology.

Obviously, we will not collect iPads until your student has completed all necessary exam study.

Middle School Families: I will come around to each classroom on Thursday, May 16th, and collect all Middle School iPads.

Should there be any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.  I am here to help in any way possible.

Thank you for your time,
