One Tab devices are still available for pick up for all virtual and hybrid K through second-grade students at the central office in Machipongo.

Chromebooks are still available for pick up for all third- through sixth-grade students on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the central office in Machipongo.

If a child has already picked up a loaner laptop from NCPS, the division asks for its return and a Chromebook will be given in exchange.
