PARIS, IL. (ECWd) -
Not only do all Paris District 95 students get free lunch, now they’re getting free laptops!
Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Larson applied and received a grant for the laptops through E2E Exchange (government e-rate funding).
Students at Memorial and Wenz Elementary, as well as Mayo Middle School received theirs last night.
Laptops are available for any student in the district in preschool through 12th grade.
Parents must fill out required paperwork and turn it in to receive the laptops.
On Friday (August 20th), Paris High School students may pick their laptops up from 3pm-5pm at 300 South Eads.
Media is invited to attend the Friday evening giveaway.
Please arrive early!
The line to get into the entrance was backed up to the highway on Wednesday evening.
