Chromebook Care

I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record (younger teacher's might have to Google that reference), but our Chromebooks need some TLC, so I've outlined a few items we all need to address so the technology lasts and works for everyone.


  • DO NOT STACK!
  • When using the carts be check that all Chromebooks are present and in proper numbered slot . This helps both of us keep track of Chromebooks.
  • It is *VERY* important to unplug the Chromebooks before removing them from the cart. We had to replace several plugs this year already due to damage.
  • Check for damage on hand out; if there is any damage submit a help desk ticket (don’t just put a note on it).
  • When collecting the Chromebooks at the end of the period, please return them to the correct numbered slot and plug in *AFTER* in correct slot . This will minimize any chance for damage.
  • DO NOT STACK! (I'm mentioning again, so it must be important!)
  • For an updated list of damaged Chromebooks visit the Technology Team drive.
  • Please report missing Chromebooks ASAP.

Following these simple steps will make our Chromebooks happy and available for the next colleague to use them.

It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.
