Chromebooks are coming HOME!!!
Please help your child to be responsible by making sure:
- homework gets completed on the Chromebook each night (don't worry, they can still use them if you don't have WiFi at home!)
- The Chromebook gets CHARGED every night! The charger does not need to come to school.
- The Chromebook gets packed in their Hornet bookbag each day.
- Keep food and drinks AWAY from the Chromebook.
- Store in a safe location! Do not leave in a car or open area.
Each student will receive 1 sheet containing 4 coupons that can be redeemed as a "free pass" if they forget their Chromebook. We will have loaner devices that the students will use during the school day in this case. However, each time the student has to use a coupon, they will lose 3 points on Class Dojo. For every time the student forgets their Chromebook after that, they will be assigned a Thursday night detention until 5pm as well as losing their Dojo points.
There are also financial responsibilities in the case of damage to or loss of the device. Please refer to the handout from Mrs. Collinsworth for a reminder of these possible charges.
Most importantly, this device is owned by Beech Grove City Schools. Please help us teach your children how to be positive digital citizens by helping them to make good choices of how to spend time on their Chromebooks at home! All of the traffic on their Chromebook WILL be tracked on a program called Go Guardian, and students may still suffer consequences at school if they are using their Chromebook in an inappropriate way at home.
