Tools for Online Learning at Woodlawn

CHROMEBOOK COMPUTER

Woodlawn is issuing Chromebooks for every registered student. Materials pick up is on Tuesdays from 8-12 at Woodlawn (hours last updated 11/04/2020). You can also visit the Office of Technology & Information Services for updated device pick up and exchange information at PPS’s main office.

WI-FI ACCESS

Families will need reliable wi-fi service to connect to the School’s distance-learning apps. If you need assistance getting access to wi-fi, contact the office by phone at (503) 916-6282 or email Sandra Villa-Luna or Kellie Russ.
