HFS iPad Program

The Holy Family School iPad program began in August 2013 with fifth and eighth grades. Now, every student in kindergarten through eighth grade takes part in the HFS iPad program. Fifth through eighth graders each use iPads at school and home, while kindergarten through fourth graders utilize class sets of iPads in their classrooms. 

It is critical that we provide students with the tools and resources to develop the technology skills they’ll need to maximize their full potential now and in the future. The HFS iPad program allows for integration of technology throughout the curriculum. 

On this website you will find information about our iPad program, including: iPad requirements, expectations for students; links to “iPad Bootcamps,” or training modules for students, parents and teachers; program details including the core apps for students, information about theft and damage claims, internet safety and the iPad User Guide; as well as answers to frequently asked questions about the program. 
If you have any other questions, please contact Ms. Erin Arnold, Technology Teacher, at earnold@holyfamily.org.

Is my Student-Owned iPad still managed by HFS?

All Student-Owned iPads were removed from our management in June, 2016.

If you have an iPad managed by HFS last school year, the iPad is no longer managed by HFS. However, the device may still be supervised. Supervision will not affect the iPad, but you may want to remove the supervision. The only way to remove supervision is to erase the iPad. To do this, go to Settings>General>Erase all Contents and Settings.
