A reminder from the Library Learning Center:

If your student brings their Chromebook home each day, please make sure they are charging their Chromebook each night. Chromebooks should come to school every morning fully charged and ready to use. Chargers should come to school with Chromebooks in case students need to recharge during the day. The library has a very limited amount of spare chargers that students may use in emergencies only. If your student has lost their charger or if you have questions about Chromebooks and chargers, please contact Ms. Colon: kristyn.colon@cusd200.org
