"Session Will End" Notification

Students and staff must log out and shut off their Google Chromebook once every 24 hours. 

If a person chooses to ignore the notification, it will continue to pop-up until it will end the session. Closing the lid will have no impact on removing the notification.

A best practice is to power off the Google Chromebook before bedtime, and to plug it into be charged and ready for another 24 hours.
