For the 2013-14 school year, South Hamilton purchased refurbished Macbook Air laptops for our entire MS/HS student body. A good number of students have experienced hard drive failures. The common misconception is "they are failing because they are refurbished machines". Apple has millions of defective machines and are offering free repairs.
Last year we saw broken hinges, failing speakers, failing cameras, failing batteries. Bad audio ports, etc etc. The only thing we have been repairing so far is the defective part. The rest of the computer has been very reliable and very fast. They are still the right choice.
All parents in the district should have received their letter regarding parent portal accounts in Infinite Campus. If you did not receive a letter, please let us know and we will send another. If you are having difficulties logging into Infinite Campus for the first time, please give us a call and we will assist you.
