The following letter is from Superintendent Todd Bunch:
Dear Parents of Ninnekah Schools Students:
Verizon has issued a recall in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission for the Verizon Jetpack mobile hot spot devices in use for distance learning. Over the last several weeks, they were made aware that the lithium-ion battery in the hot spots can OVERHEAT POSING A FIRE AND BURN HAZARD!!!!
We will be working with Verizon as quickly and efficiently as possible to exchange all devices that were issued to our school.
PLEASE RETURN THE VERIZON MOBILE HOT SPOT TO THE SCHOOL BY MAY 4TH!!!!!
When not in use, the device should be turned off and unplugged from its power source.
Place on flat, solid surface. For proper ventilation, do not use in bed, sofa, chair or soft surfaces.
Never cover the device up.
Keep device near room temperature when in use.
Only use the charging cable provided.
Do not insert foreign objects into battery unit.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have questions or concerns about the technology issued to you, please contact the school for support.
