• Great Hearts will provide a computer for you if you do not have one. If you filled out the Technology Survey, you will receive a device. There is no approval process.
  • Google Classroom and Zoom can run off of a variety of devices.  Apple products, such as iMacs, MacBooks, and iPads are all fully compatible, as well as the Microsoft/Windows devices.
  • We provided a few recommendations for low-cost devices for those who need to purchase technology for their student. We did not intend to persuade Apple users to purchase Microsoft devices. If you are an Apple family and wish to stay that way, or prefer to purchase products outside what we recommended, that is fine by us. We only ask that you ensure that the device can access the internet, and that the Chrome browser and Google Classroom App can be installed.

NOTE: While most are compatible, Smart Phones are not sufficient devices for students to effectively engage with Great Hearts Distance Learning

  • Uniform shirts will be required required when on zoom calls/synchronous sessions.

Books and Supplies
  • We encourage families to purchase Classics to Keep, but it is not required. If you are unable to purchase books, Lakeside will provide a school copy. Just like a textbook, it must be returned to the school in good condition.

  • Curricular supplies provided by the school will be distributed at a later date (see Important Dates), as will any 1st Day School Supply bundles that were ordered and shipped to the school.
  • Supplies for distance learning and campus learning are the same. Click here for the Supply List.

Face Coverings
  • Students may wear a fanny pack to store their mask when not in use. Fanny packs need to be a solid color and devoid of pop culture references.

  • For your convenience, Great Hearts Lakeside is providing gaiters for all students. If your student is not comfortable with a gaiter, he or she may wear another covering from those listed in Face Covering Policy. Click here for a more detailed explanation of our face covering policy.

NOTE: An update from the TEA regarding face coverings was sent yesterday. This policy above does not yet reflect that update.

Free and Reduced Lunch
  • Great Hearts Lakeside will provide free and reduced lunch for those who qualify. The application was sent out yesterday via email. If you are having trouble accessing your account, please contact our Director of Campus Operations, Ms. Jennifer Sande.
