Care & Maintenance

Below are reminders and tips of how to best care for and take care of your Chromebook device. 
  • No food or drink should be near the device. 
  • Cords, cables, and removable storage must be inserted carefully into the device. 
  • Devices should not be used or stored near pets, water or other liquid, food, and weather. 
  • Devices must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, labels, etc. 
  • Heavy objects should never be placed on top of devices. 
  • Never swap or share devices. Each student is responsible for their assigned device. 
  • The device should remain secured or attended at all times.
  • Never expose a device to long-term temperature extremes or direct sunlight. An automobile is not a good place to store a device.
  • Each student will be issued a protective case that should be used for storage and transportation of the device at all times. 
  • Always transport devices with care and inside the issued case.
  • Do not place textbooks on the device or inside issued case. 
  • Do not stuff the device in a book bag; extreme pressure on the device can cause permanent damage to the screen and other components. 
  • Never open the device by pushing on the screen. 
  • Never pick up the device with the screen open. 
  • Never leave the device in a car or bus. (Extreme temperatures can damage the battery.) 
  • Students attending or participating in physical education class and/or extracurricular activities should leave devices in their lockers, which must be locked, when not in use. 
  • Students attending or participating in activities outside of school should exercise extreme caution to protect the device from harm. Students are liable for all damages and theft.
  • Never throw or slide your device.
  • Each device has a unique identification number and at no time should the numbers or labels be modified or removed.
  • The device is designed for daily use; therefore, each device must be charged and ready for use each school day.  All devices should be charged at home.
  • The device must remain free of stickers, writing, painting, or any other forms of adornment. If a student wishes to personalize the school issued carrying case, they may as long as the identification numbers can still be seen clearly.
