Chromebook Etiquette-Parents, we need your assistance with the following:

At THE we have Chromebook rules.

1. Only log into a Chromebook using their own username and password.

2. Do not let anyone borrow your Chromebook if you have already logged into it.

3. Be mindful that everything we search for on the internet is being monitored.

4. As a student, you are ultimately responsible for anything being searched for under your username and password.

Parents, we greatly appreciate your help with this matter.
