Care and Use of Your Chromebook

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 pick at, write on, or remove any of the labels
  • Do not leave the Chromebook in a car or unsupervised area
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 a staff member 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.
Chromebooks Left at Home
  • Similar to other school provided resources, students are expected to bring their device to school, fully charged, each day.
  • There are two loaner Chromebooks in each classroom. Because there are only two, 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, students should bring their AC adapter to school each day.

  • USB mice and keyboards
  • SD cards
  • External monitors and projectors
  • Headsets, earbuds and microphones
