Chromebook Care and Tips

Here are some reminders for use and care of student Chromebooks.
Classroom teachers, please go over the information with your students, especially the guidelines.
Parents/Guardians, you may want to go over some of these with your student as well.
If we take care of the Chromebooks we can insure their use for years to come and keep this program operational.
Guidelines for Chromebooks
  1. Use both hands or the handle when carrying your Chromebook.
  2. Do not lift the Chromebook by its screen. Close it before moving or carrying.
  3. Do not put excessive weight onto your Chromebook.
    1. NOTE - Some book bags have built in laptop pockets. These are good, but you cannot place excessive amounts of books on top of it, or drop or slam your bag.

  5. Only clean the screen with a soft dry anti-static cloth or microfiber cloth.
  6. Do not put excessive pressure on the screen.
  7. Do not leave the Chromebook in extreme hot or cold temperatures.
  8. Do not put stickers on the Chromebook.
  9. Do not tamper with or alter  or remove the identification labels currently on the Chromebook.
