Replacement parts: My student lost their stylus or charging cord. What do I do?

Please contact the SMS Librarian, Carol Masters, for a replacement.  She has the same ACER stylus and charger in stock that came with your student's device - ready for purchase at cost.  To purchase, a "fine" will be added to your student's online payment account to be paid online.  The stylus is $42.40 and the charger is $17.40.  

Please note:  If you do not replace these lost items, you will be fined for them at these same prices (our cost) when you return your device to SVSD.  Buying your own off-brand replacement from Amazon or Best Buy is no longer accepted as a replacement part.
