Chromebooks: Students are to bring their chromebooks home every night and charge them. The chargers need to stay at home. Teachers will NOT have chargers in their rooms this year. There are a limited number of cords in the Media Center if needed.  Please make sure you are using the correct cord for your device.  Continuous use of the media center chargers will be recorded in the Technology behavior tracker. Repeated offenses will result in checking your chromebook in and out of the office for a period of time. If you are on check in / check out they need to be turned into the office after school every day.  If you misplace your chromebook, backtrack all of your classes, talk to each teacher.  If you still can not find it, report it to Ms. Petersen in the front office.
