4th Grade Ipad FAQ's for Parents

Updating you on ipad use in & out of the classroom

A Few Reminders:


Device Safety at School and Home:

· Keep cover closed and secured with straps when not in use

· Carry with two hands at all times

· Hold the iPad by the base not the cover

· Keep in backpack while on the bus

· Water bottles, lunch bags and wet winter clothing should not be put in the backpack with iPad

Home Responsibilities:

· Bring to school each day, fully charged

· Charger should stay at home

· Apps provided by the school are the only apps that should be used

· Remember that your iPad should be used for educational purposes

· Refer to the District User Agreement (AUP)

· Monitor your child’s internet use

Caring for iPad:

· Students must use the district-issued case at all times (personal cases are not allowed) and the iPad must remain in the case at all times

· Do not deface the iPad case / iPad (ex. do not add stickers, markings, etc.)

· With this version of iPad, screen protectors are not needed

· Each iPad case includes a student identification tag. To help us easily return misplaced iPads, leave this tag in the case at all times

· Use only a soft, lint-free cloth. Abrasive cloths, towels, paper towels, and similar items may cause damage to the item

· When cleaning, disconnect your iPad from any external power sources and disconnect headphones,microphones, etc.

· Do not spray cleaners directly on to the item

· Don’t get moisture into any openings, and don’t use aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives

· Keep liquids away from the iPad

Failure to follow these recommendations could result in the child’s family having to pay a replacement cost for a damaged or defaced iPad.
