  • SEES Chromebook Request

    Attention Parents of South Effingham Elementary School:

    All students who are attending SEES face-to-face classes will need a Chromebook or laptop that can be brought to school every day. Parents are encouraged to purchase a Chromebook for your child; however, SEES will provide school-issued Chromebooks to parents who request it. 

    For parents who wish to purchase your own Chromebook, the district offers  Computer Purchasing Guidance if you need help selecting a device. Please note that per handbook policy, the school assumes no responsibility or liability for lost or damaged personal devices if brought to school.

    For parents who would like to request a school-issued Chromebook, please fill out  THIS FORM as soon as possible. Chromebooks will be distributed during the first week of school, on a first-come-first-served basis. Please read the  Chromebook Acceptance Form carefully; note that you are agreeing to be charged $275 for any device that is lost, stolen, or damaged beyond repair. Furthermore, $50 will be charged to cover repairs for broken keyboards, screens, or charging cables.

    Please note that this announcement does not apply to students who are signed up for ECSD’s Virtual Option. The district website contains information on devices for Virtual Option students.


    Thank you for your continuous support of South Effingham Elementary School!


    Effingham County has released guidance for computer purchasing.

    We want all students' transitions back to school to be as easy as possible for everyone.  While some things will be different, we remain fully committed to providing all of our students with a safe, loving environment where they can excel.  In order to help us with this, there are a few things you can begin practicing at home now, especially with our youngest students.  If your child will be wearing a mask, please make sure they have practiced wearing their masks for extended periods of time.  This would be a tremendous help to your child's teacher.  Additionally, if students will be bringing their lunch to school, please try to send their lunch in easily opened containers, or provide them with practice opening pre-packaged lunch items.  These requests, while seemingly small, will be a tremendous help to your SEES family.  Thank you so much!  We cannot wait to have our kids back in the building with us.  We have sincerely missed them and are looking forward to a wonderful school year!Help your child at lunch
