All students need a dedicated charger for their iPad at home.
Please support your student in building the skill of charging their iPads overnight. iPads are used in nearly every class, and school charger access is limited.

Students received a charger from the district when they received their new iPads in 2021. 
HPMS has an extremely limited number of replacement chargers (<40) for the entire school of 800 students, and once those are distributed, there are no more until next year.

NOTE: If you are in need of supplies, and it is a financial burden, please contact either our school social workers or school counselors for assistance at (651) 293-8950. There are funds available to help you!
