It is recommended that your child use a district provided laptop for instruction.  However, if you wish to use your personal laptop, it must be registered for use on the OCPS network.  The registration form can be found BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) at


The district has a limited number of hotspots for families who have no access to Internet.  Hotspots are issued based upon online request at  The form is at the bottom of the page.  If you are issued a hotspot, it will be delivered to the school and Lancaster will call once it is ready.

Thank you for your patience as we work through reopening our schools. 

To date, Friday, August 21, is the tentative start date for students but is subject to change.  The School Board has submitted a waiver request to locally determine the start date of face-to-face instruction.  Please keep in mind all plans are fluid and we will inform you of any adjustments.
