Supplies & Devices
All Northshore Virtual Online students have access to a District Chromebook. Please let us know if you need assistance either getting a Chromebook or if you have any issues with your Chromebook.
In an effort to ensure equitable access to school supplies, reduce the amount of money and time parents spend purchasing items for school, and promote academic success for every student, the School Supply Advisory Committee developed the following expectations:
- School supplies are requested but not required.
- Teachers may also request additional supplies for their individual classrooms.
- Items marked with an asterisk(*) may be pooled into classroom resources for all students.
- Exceptions to this list may be made for students in special education programs.

Elementary provides a monthly pick-up of resources and supplies.
If you were unable to pick up your student’s Northshore School District supported computing device at one of our device pick-up events, and would still like one, please complete the form at http://go.nsd.org/studenttechhelp and indicate your need along with some possible pickup times that work for you. A District technician will contact you to make arrangements for obtaining the device. Families must fill out a device use agreement to receive a district-issued device.
If you need internet access, we encourage you to look into the special programs offered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Comcast, and Ziply to provide affordable internet access to homes.
