He can't unless there is a school server nearby, and in that case the
school can help.


"An activation key is a file named lease.sig containing a
cryptographic signature tied to a specific XO laptop and used to
register the laptop with a school server in a deployment."

If he needs an activation lease, his XO is locked by its security
software. Also, that need implies that the XO came from a country such
as Uruguay that uses this form of security.
