February is Laptop TLC Month for Bartlett City Schools!

February is Laptop TLC Month for Bartlett City Schools!

During the month of February, the Technology Department will highlight best practices for laptop care and maintenance. We ask that you treat your own laptop with “tender loving care” and encourage others to do the same.

This week is about avoiding damage to your laptop and it emphasizes the biggest culprit of laptop damage...the dreaded SPILL!

Avoid Laptop Damage

- Keep ALL liquids away from your laptop!
- Protect your laptop keyboard from crumbs and other particles.
- Sleep or Shut Down your laptop before moving it from place to place.
- Make sure the keyboard is cleared of all objects, then gently close the lid.
- Always support your laptop with both hands.
- Handle your laptop gently to avoid bumps and dings to the case.
- Use your laptop bag to transport your laptop.
- Avoid dangling cables that can cause your laptop to be pulled off the desk or table.
- Avoid exposing your laptop to extreme temperatures or precipitation.
- Clean the laptop screen with a soft cloth or with a cleaning product designed specifically for computer screens.
- Remember that you are the only person authorized to use your laptop.

Important Tip from the TSTs (Technology Support Technicians)
If a spill occurs, your immediate action can help minimize damage to laptop components. Power down immediately, unplug the computer and submit a work order as soon as possible. Do not turn the laptop back on. Consult your TST or ITC.

Principal's Message

Monday, July 18, 2016
Welcome Class of 2020!

Freshmen and Parents of Freshmen, we are set to begin our third year at the Academy. We have had such incredibly good experiences these past two years here at Bartlett Academy. We have the best faculty in the world, and we live in the best community in the world. We are looking forward to even bigger and better things with the class of 2020.

We will start the year somewhat unofficially with our third Freshman Panther Camp on Friday, July 29th, from 8am to 1pm. Incoming freshmen will learn about the Academy and about high school. They will get to meet students who have been at the Academy the past couple of years, and they will get to meet other freshmen. Students will tour the facility and meet teachers, staff, counselors, and administrators. We will provide pizza for lunch and ice cream afterwards. Brand new Class of 2020 short-sleeve spirit t-shirts will be available for $15 - blue, red, or gray.

One of the great experiences the Academy offers is the opportunity for ninth graders who are coming to us from three different feeder schools - Appling, Bon Lin, and Elmore Park - to come together as a freshman class before they head to BHS next year. This expanded peer group is an invaluable benefit to students as they enter BHS at 10th graders. This year's freshmen will have the unique experience (so far) as sophomores when they join a BHS student body next year made up completely of students who experienced their ninth grade year at the Academy.

I want to give you some important communication links that will make this year the best it can be. First, our website address is , and we post important information here throughout the year. We also have a Facebook page - - and a Twitter page - - where we also post important news and reminders. We will post the morning announcements - the ones your son or daughter may or may not listen to, but will definitely not tell you about either way - to each of these three sites daily. Also, don't forget that you will have access to PowerSchool after Labor Day. Finally, I encourage you to sign up for Remind accounts from teachers (mine is @f8d4bb for parents, and @6cfddg for students), as well as their Edmodo mailing lists (mine is for parents, and for students).

As we go through this freshman year together, students will have some wonderful experiences and make some lasting memories. They will have the opportunity to learn some valuable lessons about the rigors and demands of a challenging high school curriculum. When all is said and done at the end of the year, these freshmen will be fully prepared for success at BHS and beyond. Thank you for being a part of your son’s or daughter’s school family with us this coming year. Together, we can make it a great one.

John McDonald, Principal
