Taking Care of Your Chromebook

Protecting your Chromebook

 

  • Do not add any stickers or any other decorative items that would alter the appearance of the Chromebook from when you received it

  • Do not tamper with school tags that are present on the Chromebooks.

  • Use both hands when opening the Chromebooks.

  • Do not hold the Chromebook by the screen.

  • Always close the Chromebook before walking with it--remember, it has an 8-second startup.

  • Be sure to place the Chromebook in its protective case that was provided to you before you walk in the hallways.

  • Running in the hallways is prohibited--keep in mind that all students are now carrying Chromebooks.

  • Never pack your Chromebook with other materials. Keep it separate from textbooks and other heavy objects that could potentially damage the screen.

  • Keep food and drink away from your Chromebook--they are not allowed in the Cafeteria.

  • Treat your Chromebook as a valuable material--do not leave it lying around.

Cleaning your Chromebook

  • Do not use any chemicals or other liquids to clean your Chromebook.

  • Use microfiber cloth to wipe down the screen.

Powering your Chromebook

  • Chromebooks are required to be fully charged when you arrive at school each day.

  • When charging, be sure to place the Chromebook in an area that will prevent people from tripping from the power cord. This could injure the person and/or damage the Chromebook.

  • Determine a consistent place to charge your Chromebook at home.

Protecting your Account

  • Anytime you leave your Chromebook on your desk, close the lid so that no one can access your documents.
  • Do not share your Chromebook with anyone unless your teacher asks you to do so--In that case, be sure to sign out before you hand your Chromebook to the other student!
  • Do not share your password with anyone!

Other important reminders

  • Anything you do on the Internet (on any device) is visible to someone--the Internet Service Provider, the company whose service you are using, others who can access your computer, etc.

  • Pictures, music, etc., on your Chromebook should be appropriate for school--just like the pictures inside your locker or on your binder or music that might be played in a classroom at school.
