General Care of Chromebooks
Chromebooks are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure on the screen. The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. Protect the Chromebook screen by following the rules below:
Close the Chromebook screen before moving it. Do not lean on the top of the Chromebook when it is closed.
Do not place anything near the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen. Do not poke the screen. Be careful about placing books and other items against the Chromebook in your book bag as it may be damaged.
Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or flash drives).
Clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth or an anti-static cloth.
Do not bump the Chromebook against lockers, walls, car doors, floors, etc. as it will eventually break the screen.
No food or drink is allowed next to your Chromebook while it is in use.
To conserve battery life, Chromebooks should be shut down before moving them.
Chromebooks must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, or labels that are not the property of the Greer High School. Chromebooks must never be left in a car or any unsupervised area.
Each student is expected to bring his/her Chromebook to school every day fully charged. A fully charged Chromebook has an average battery life of 8 hours. Students should leave their chargers at home. We will be unable to charge students' Chromebooks for them and cannot issue temporary loaners if students do forget to charge. It is essential that students include charging their Chromebooks at home as part of their daily routine.
