Monday, Maricopa Unified School District began distributing laptops to all students, starting with the incoming freshmen at Maricopa High School. The drive-through line started early on Honeycutt Avenue and soon stretched back toward John Wayne Parkway as staff took paperwork and sent families through three stations to get laptops, which will be using Edgenuity software as part of the synchronous, distance learning. School starts in virtual mode July 30 and will switch to in-person classes for those who wish it when the state allows campuses to reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
