Care and Use of Chromebooks

Students are responsible for the general care of the Chromebook they have been issued by the school. 
General Precautions
Keep food, drinks, water away from the computer
When unplugging the charger, grab and pull the plug not the cable
Do not put any foreign objects into any charging ports, aux port, or usb ports
Do not pick at, write on, or remove any of the labels
Do not leave the Chromebook in a car or unsupervised area
Do not leave the Chromebook in an unventilated area to avoid overheating
Chromebooks Left in Unsupervised Areas
Chromebooks should never be left in an unsupervised area
Unsupervised areas include the school grounds and campus, the cafeteria, labs, gymnasium, locker rooms, library, unlocked classrooms, restrooms, and hallways.
Any Chromebook left in these areas is in danger of being damaged or stolen.
If an unsupervised Chromebook is found, notify the Attendance office or Tech Office immediately
Unsupervised Chromebooks will be confiscated by staff.
Carrying the Chromebook
Never pickup your Chromebook by grabbing the top of the screen
Always close your Chromebook before you move it
Screen Care
Never pick up your Chromebook by grabbing the top of the screen
Do not place items on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or ear buds).
Clean the screen with a soft, dry microfiber cloth or anti-static cloth.
Chromebook Usage
Students are responsible for bringing the full charged Chromebook, along with the charger to school every day
Students are responsible for bringing their Chromebook to all classes.
Chromebooks should be stored in a backpack when not in use. Do not leave your backpack where it can be easily stepped on.
Chromebooks Left at Home
Similar to other school provided resources, students are expected to bring their device to school, fully charged, each day.
Some teachers, not ALL, have Chromebooks in their classrooms. We cannot guarantee that you will have use of a loaner so remember to bring yours.
Charging your Chromebook
Students must fully charge their Chromebooks each evening.
While a fully charged Chromebook battery should last for an entire day of regular use at school. 
We ask students avoid charging their Chromebooks during class as it can create a tripping/safety hazard. 
Some teachers might also have a no charging policy, especially at the beginning of the day.
