Recently, the Troup County School System (TCSS) Information Technology department received reports that certain Dell power cords issued after July 2020 have been separating from the plug and emitting a spark near the outlet plug and the device charger. Out of an abundance of caution and safety for their students and employees, the school system will be replacing defective power cords beginning Saturday (tomorrow) at 9:00 a.m.
TCSS will begin replacing a limited number of power cords on Saturday, September 26, 2020 from 9 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (noon). To obtain a new power cord, parents and students can come to 100 North Davis Rd., Building A (up the hill by the TCSS Bus Shop) and return the old power cord. They will then be issued a new power cord. TCSS is working with their supplier for the remaining shipment to be sent early next week.
Any student having power cord and/or charger issues will be given additional time to complete work from the virtual learning day.
