posted Aug 3, 2015, 11:11 AM by Valerie Newton   [ updated Aug 3, 2015, 11:11 AM ]
Laptops for high school students will be distributed on Monday, August 17th from 12pm-7pm and on Tuesday, August 18th from 2pm-7pm.  The user fee for the 2015-16 school year is $50. There is an Early Bird online payment option for $40 - save $10 - through midnight August 16th. The Early Bird payment option will close at midnight August 16th.  After August 16th the fee will be $50. You can access the online payment portal here > http://osp.osmsinc.com/BladenNC/ < or by visiting the high school website and clicking on the button located on the left hand side of the page to access "Online School Payments" portal. 

New this year, we are offering parents the option to purchase the laptop instead of renting it. Lenovo representatives will be at the two high schools during laptop distribution days, August 17th and August 18th to process your purchase. The district has chosen a Lenovo Chromebook N21 laptop as the device that students will be using. This laptop is designed with reliability, ruggedness and ease of use in mind. Reinforced ports and hinges, anti-peel keys and a sealed touchpad make the Lenovo N21 Chromebook durable while the rotatable camera, retractable handle and 9.5 hours of battery life make it excellent for the education environment.  Features include a keyboard/touchpad combo, bluetooth, webcam, USB ports, Chrome OS, Intel Celeron, 4 GB RAM, and a 1 year limited warranty.  Lenovo is offering this for purchase at the education price of $210 plus tax. You will also have the option to purchase an extended warranty and a carry-case.
