Computer Use and Care
Please have a conversation with your student about how they are treating their devices.
We have had an increase in repairs due to treatment of chromebooks. This increase eliminates return time and availability to other devices.
As much as our tech department is doing their best to support these incidents, they can be limited with better care by our students. Here are a few things to remind your students:
- Keep computers in their chromebook bags when transporting
- Do not place heavy objects on computer
- Close tops of computers gently
- Do not eat and drink near or while using the computer
These simple behaviors can help care for these computers and eliminate opportunities for issues to occur. Thank you for taking time to review this with your students.
Great Job Winter Athletes!
