Have you purchased a personal computer for your student this holiday? Do you no longer need your school loaned device? We continue to have requests for new loaner devices or replacement for broken ones. If you no longer have a need for your school loaned device and would like to return it, please contact the Technical Support Team <click here> to arrange a time to drop-off the MLA device, or call the Elementary School (503) 405-7868.

Interested in getting a personal device but don't have it in the budget? Look into this program with FreeGeek <click>. If you have an old device you no longer use, think about donating to FreeGeek and give your electronics a life beyond the scrap yard.

Also, if you have Comcast Essentials, you have the option to purchase a laptop or desktop computer at a discounted price from Comcast. See what's available from Comcast Essentials Low Cost Computer Program <click>.
