Hopewell students are issued a laptop and charger (Approximate dimensions are 13" X 9" X 1"). Since students are not allowed to carry their backpacks to class, we ask that they bring a separate, smaller bag to hold their device and charger.  While we do not recommend a particular bag, we have found that a padded bag with a strap/handles works best to help protect the laptop from pressure damage or cracked screens and a resulting FCS device fine.

    Missing or damaged laptop items may be paid for on OSP (there is a small service charge for using the Online School Payment System).  You may also bring cash or money orders to the Media Center.  Our school DOES NOT accept personal checks.

    Fines for Device Damage, Loss, or Theft:

    • Lost/Stolen: $250
    • Damaged: $100 (examples: pressure damage, cracked screen, liquid spilled on device)
    • Lost/Damaged Charger: $30

    Device Distribution

    Device Deployment will take place Tuesday, August 16, 2022

    All HMS students will be issued a Fulton County Device and charger on Tuesday, August 16.  If you prefer that your child use a personal device brought from home, please see the information below about opting out.

     Students who want to OPT OUT and will use a PERSONAL DEVICE

    Students who wish to use their personal device do not need to receive a Fulton County device. One will be provided to them during Milestone testing. Hopewell uses Microsoft products, so please make sure your device has access to Word, Teams, OneNote, OneDrive, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. You also can download Microsoft 365 for free onto your personal device. Click here for more information. The Fulton County website has more specifics if you want to ensure your device is appropriate.

    NOTE: Students Who Still Have a Fulton County Device

    Students who currently have a Fulton County device due to participation in summer school or a Fulton Virtual class should return them to their home school or summer school location as soon as their class is done.  They will be issued a new, reimaged device once school begins.
