iPad Return Guidelines


  • Make sure the iPad is charged and is turned on when you bring the device.
  • The iPad, charger, and charging cable should all be turned in at the designated collection station.
  • iPads will be assessed for damages or missing components by staff upon return.
  • Fees will be charged for any missing items. Fee charges are listed below:

    Missing iPad (not including charger/cable) = $375.55
    Missing Lightning to USB cable = $13
    Missing Power Adapter + Duckhead (full power cube) = $30

We look forward to celebrating the end of this school year with your child!

If you have any library or classroom books, please return them during your visit on Monday.
The last day of school for this school year is Thursday, June 11.
Free Meals will continue to be available at FC-Dunbar M-F from 10:00-1:00 through June 11.
There will be no food deliveries after June 11.  Beginning June 12, there will be six schools throughout our district that members of our community can visit and continue to pick up meals through June 30.  East Rutherford Middle, Ellenboro Elementary, Forrest Hunt Elementary, Harris Elementary, Mt. Vernon-Ruth Elementary School, and Spindale Elementary will continue to offer meal pick-up from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.  Remember that this service is provided to any child ages 0 - 18.  You are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.  After June 30 the remote food service program will no longer be offered by Rutherford County Schools in order for us to assess the most current guidance from state and local officials.  If we are able to offer this service again to our community, this information will be shared at a later date.  You can find this information on the Rutherford County Schools Webpage and other social media sites.
Kindergarten Registration is open NOW.  Stop by the school M-F between 8:00-3:30 to pick up and turn in a Kindergarten Registration Packet. 
Yearbooks are on sale for $15 each.  You may turn in your money anytime the school is open.  We will give you the yearbook when you make the payment.
We are nearing the end of our school year, and we are so proud of the hard work that our students have done all year, and particularly during remote learning. We want to hear from our students about the things that worked well during remote instruction and the things that could be improved upon. Students, please take the time to complete our Remote Learning Survey before turning in your devices, if possible. You can access the survey through Canvas or the Rutherford County Schools website.  Parents, please assist your younger children with completing the survey. Also, parents, we want to hear from you as well. In the coming week, we will send information about a Remote Learning Survey for Parents.
