Chromebook Care

Students are responsible for the general care of the Chromebook, power supply and sleeve they have been issued by the school. Chromebooks that are broken or fail to work properly must be reported to a teacher or administrator as soon as possible so that they can be taken care of. School-owned Chromebooks should never be taken to an outside computer service for any type of repairs or maintenance. Students should never leave their Chromebooks unattended except locked in their hallway locker. 

General Precautions 

  • No food or drink should be next to Chromebooks.
  • Cords, cables, and removable storage devices must be inserted carefully into Chromebooks.
  • Chromebooks must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, and labels. 
  • Heavy objects should never be placed on top of Chromebooks.
  • Students will take proper care of the Chromebook sleeve. No writing on or tearing of covers. 

Carrying Chromebooks 

  • Always transport Chromebooks with care and with the screen closed. 
  • Never lift Chromebooks by the screen.
  • Never carry Chromebooks with the screen open.
  • Always place Chromebooks in the sleeve when moving from classroom to classroom. 

Screen Care 

The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to heavy objects, rough treatment, some cleaning solvents, and other liquids. The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure, heat, and light. 

  • Do not put pressure on the top of a Chromebook when it is closed
  • Do not store a Chromebook with the screen open.
  • Make sure there is nothing on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils).
  • Only clean the screen with a soft, dry microfiber cloth or anti-static cloth. 

Asset Tags 

All Chromebooks will be labeled.
Labels placed on the device by CBRSD should not be modified or tampered with in any way. 

Chromebooks left unattended 

Under no circumstances should Chromebooks be left in unsupervised areas. Unsupervised areas include the school grounds, the lunchroom, bathrooms, computer labs, library, unlocked classrooms, and hallways. Any Chromebook left in these areas is in danger of being stolen. If a Chromebook is found in an unsupervised area, it should be taken immediately to the front office. Multiple offenses will result in disciplinary action.
