Students will return the laptops outside the library and will also be expected to fill out year-end check-out sheets. They are responsible for any damage laptops sustained in their care and must pay a deductible by June 8. Those who will return to PCHS next year can keep their bags, chargers and cables, but seniors must return all items.
