BNL encourages all students and parents/guardians attend their designated orientation day. For parents/guardians unable to attend their designated day, we welcome you to the Open Session on Friday - if you are unable to attend either day, we invite you to attend the Chromebook Orientation session any available day during Welcome Week. In the event a parent/guardian is unable to attend, we will have information for students to bring home AND you can find the orientation items below and within the site: bnlgoeschrome.org
All Orientation Sessions will begin in the Performing Arts Center. Students and Parents will then visit checkpoint stations. Welcome Week will start with a Chromebook Orientation session in the PAC, followed by receipt of NLCS Chromebook Handbook. Schedules will then be available for students. Students may explore their class schedule, as well as locate their locker! Students will also need to take their Photo ID, purchase their Parking Pass, receive their BPL Digital Library Card, and tour an ECA Fair in the Cafeteria. Finally, students and parents will visit the Bookstore to receive any issued textbooks (many courses will have classroom textbook sets) & pay fees, and collect their NLCS Chromebook. Check out the flyer below to assist you in navigating the Welcome Week checkpoint stations!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CHROMEBOOKS
New to BNL this year will be the issuance of NLCS ACER Chromebooks to all BNL Students. As we incorporate this new learning tool into the educational environment, there are some important details to convey. During the Welcome Week - Chromebook Orientation - we will share a short video that overviews the purpose of chromebooks, in addition to the expectations of chromebook usuage. Click on the video below to check it out. Parents & Students will have access to the NLCS Chromebook Handbook and NLCS Responsible Use Policy to view the policies in full detail - found under the Policy Tab. Within the NLCS Chromebook Handbook is the NLCS Accidental Damage Protection Plan, which is highlighted under the NLCS Accidental Damage Protection Plan Tab. Upon learning about the Chromebooks, Parents & Students will need to agree to the policies, signing off on the NLCS Chromebook Acknowledge Form and indicate their option for the NLCS Accidental Damage Protection Plan, returning the sign document to the BNL Bookstore.
