Chromebooks 101

The 1:1 Chromebooks assigned to students will remain with them for the next few years. Expectations outlined in the Chromebook Handbook remain in place year-round. Students are responsible for the Chromebook at home—even during the summer months. If the device is lost, stolen, and/or damaged, replacement or repair expenses are the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

There are many ways to care for the 1:1 Chromebook:
Store the Chromebook in a clean, dry place.
Do not eat or drink around the Chromebook.
Wipe the Chromebook clean with a soft, dry cloth.
Keep the Chromebook in its protective case.
Keep the charger with the Chromebook and case.
Leave the Chromebook at home when going outdoors or on vacation.
