Important Information About Chromebooks and Chargers

Big picture

Parents, with the potential of bad weather, we will be sending home Chromebooks from time to time. This is a reminder that Chromebooks and chargers should come back to school the next day. Students use their computers each day in class, so it's very important that they have them at school.

I would encourage parents to keep the Chromebook and charger in the backpack unless they are needed for e-learning. If these items are lost, parents will be charged for a replacement.


Charger (damaged, missing)


Chromebook (missing, stolen, damaged beyond repair)
