April 10 COVID-19 update: On-site Chromebook distribution halted 

To comply with Onondaga County and New York state provisions and guidelines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Fayetteville-Manlius School District has suspended its on-site distribution of district-owned Chromebooks for student use. 

If a student has an urgent need, parents or guardians can request a Chromebook by contacting the district Help Desk at helpdesk@fmschools.org or 315-692-1111. Chromebooks will be delivered using district transportation services, coinciding with food service delivery routes.  

When contacting the Help Desk, please be prepared with the following information:

  • Student name and school;
  • Phone number;
  • Email;
  • Home address; and
  • Explanation of need.  

A digital Technology Acceptable Use and Waiver form will be sent to families via email to be signed and submitted prior to Chromebook delivery. Help Desk personnel will assist with those who may have difficulty with digital submission.  

A parent or guardian must be at home to receive the Chromebook, which will be left in an agreed upon secure location outside the residence.

Continued communications

The district will continue to update the community via the district website with any new information and frequently asked questions.

Any time-sensitive, critical information will be shared via the district’s SchoolMessenger notification system, which sends email, text message and phone call notifications, depending upon how parents subscribed to the system.
