Use and Care
Food and drinks should not be consumed near your Chromebook.
Cords, cables and removable storage devices must be inserted or removed carefully to avoid damaging the Chromebook’s ports.
Never transport your Chromebook with the power cord plugged in.
Chromebook screens can be easily damaged. The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure.
Do not lean or put pressure on the top of the Chromebook when it is closed.
Do not store the Chromebook with the screen in the open position.
Do not poke the screen with anything that will mark or scratch the screen surface. Use the stylus or your finger.
Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or disks).
Clean the screen with a soft, dry microfiber cloth or anti-static cloth. Chemical solvents, such as Clorox wipes, can damage the Chromebook screen.
Storing your Chromebook
Chromebooks should be powered off before storing to preserve battery life and internal hardware.
If you have a Chromebook over the summer, please charge it occasionally. The battery will drain even when the device is powered off. Once the battery drains below 10%, it will no longer work. There is a cost associated with battery replacement.
Nothing should be placed on top of the Chromebook when stored.
Chromebooks should not be stored in a vehicle at school or at home for security and temperature control measures.
Student Chromebooks are managed and are the property of Greene County Public Schools.
For security purposes, Internet filtering is functioning at school and at home.
Some legitimate sites may be blocked because they appear uncategorized in the system. You can request a site to be unblocked, and upon review, we can open it up for you.
Are you sure you lost it? Look everywhere.
You will be charged for a replacement Chromebook if yours is not found.
If you suspect that your Chromebook has been stolen, a parent/guardian will need to file a police report and notify the school as soon as possible.
Once the police report has been filed, a copy will need to be provided to the school.
When the school receives a copy of the police report a replacement Chromebook will be provided.
