Good Evening, Artesian Families,
I had the opportunity to speak with Todd Gustafson, the President of United States HP this morning. Based upon our conversation, the battery engineering science he shared, and the steps HP is taking to ensure device safety, I feel confident in allowing our students to have their devices back unrestricted. We will continue to monitor devices while at school and would ask that you and your student do the same at home as a precaution. At this point, we believe this event was situational to a specific malfunctioning device and not something to be alarmed about moving forward.
As I’ve said in my two previous communications, I’m sorry for the inconvenience but please know that the safety of your student and family are much more important than that of a device.
Have a great rest of the week!
Dr. Jay Arthur
