  • Do not write or draw on, etch, or apply stickers, decals or labels to the Chromebook.
  • Do not leave the Chromebook unattended.
  • Do not lift Chromebooks by the screen.
  • Always carry a Chromebook either supported by both hands underneath the bottom or with one hand under an edge with the lid closed.
  • Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g., pens, pencils, notebooks).
  • Do not wedge the Chromebook into a book bag or place anything in the carrying case/protective cover that will compress the cover.
  • Do not poke or draw on the screen with any sharp object (pen, pencil, etc.)
  • Always transport the Chromebook in a bag or backpack that has a padded laptop compartment or insert. If the charger is kept in the bag or backpack, store it in a separate compartment.
  • Unplug the charger from the Chromebook before putting it in a bag, case or backpack.
Students may put reusable non-stick "cling" style school-appropriate attachments (skins) to their devices. Chromebook cases may be personalized as students choose so long as the integrity/structure of the case is not altered.
Cases and skins must be removed when the Chromebook is turned in at the end of the year.
All Chromebooks come with an OEM or OEM equivalent Charger issued by the district. Using an aftermarket charger could result in device damage. If a motherboard is found to be damaged due to use of an aftermarket charger, you may be required to pay for a replacement motherboard or full device replacement. If you require a replacement charger, the cost is $25, please fill out an IT request so we may provide a replacement. Returning a chromebook with aftermarket charger may result in a replacement invoice as we cannot issue a device with a non OEM charger.
