Student Computer Care Guidelines

Caring for your School Laptop

Quick tips for keeping your school laptop running smoothly

  • Bring your computer to school fully charged (and remember your charger!)
  • Restart daily when you get to school.
  • Keep food and drink away from your computer
  • Be gentle when typing, clicking, and opening and closing the lid. 
  • Use removable tape (label maker is OK), to label your computer and charger.  No stickers, permanent markers, adhesives, etc.
  • Carrying your laptop in an overstuffed backpack could lead to screen damage.  Make sure there is plenty of room.  You may want to use a padded laptop case if you're worried about it getting squished!
  • AT HOME: Leave your device plugged in, powered on, and connected to WIFi overnight to charge your computer and download/install updates.
