Student Headphones Specifications

We are eager to begin a new and innovative year in Short Hills! In our curriculum, we use various apps on the school’s iPads and Chromebooks that require voice recording capability and listening. In order to avoid sharing headphones, we ask that students bring their own set to school. Headphones should include an in-line microphone for recording purposes. The headphones that we recommend—Ailihen C8 or Besom i36—cost around $20. We have found that earbuds do not work well for little ears, so we recommend over-the-ear headphones. 

 

Charger Specifications 

Students need to be able to charge their Pingry devices at home, particularly if they are remote. There will be opportunities to charge devices in school, but those will be dependent on how much use the device gets during the day. Charging at home will require two chargers for every student:   

USB-C Chromebook charger

Lightning charger and USB power adaptor

 

Laptop Approved Backpacks

We recommend a backpack that has a padded laptop insert that can accommodate a 15” device. If a backpack has already been purchased, we suggest using a zippered protective laptop sleeve to help keep your school device safe.

Examples:

Form-fitted laptop sleeve

Waterproof laptop sleeve
