Student Chromebook Reminders

Just a few reminders for students about their Chromebook usage:


  • Remind your students to charge their Chromebooks every night at home so they have a full battery the next morning!
  • Remind them to completely turn off their Chromebook when they are not using it. Putting it in sleep mode can cause issues with battery functionality.


Thanks for your help!
