  • The more instances of MEET a student has open, the more network bandwidth they will be using (and also more resources they will be using on their Chromebook slowing it down). Make sure to close out of a previous MEET before entering the next MEET to improve network quality.
  • Students can also check their home wifi network stability from the 3 dots (bottom right of the MEET) and clicking on "Troubleshooting and Help". Once there, students are reminded to avoid activities that use lots of bandwidth and/or interfere w/ wifi signals like video games and microwaves. Physically moving closer to the wifi router will also help with speed and connection.  Watch this screencast for more troubleshooting tips Webcam Issues

  • Since March 2020, the Internet, and computers worldwide have been asked to perform at unprecedented levels.  Video-conferencing tools are memory-intensive and demand a lot from your network and devices, especially when you are participating in multiple MEETs a day (students take part in 7!).  The first and easiest troubleshooting step when encountering a problem whether, on a laptop, desktop, Chromebook is to restart the computer.  Without a hard drive to boot up, a Chromebook can reboot in 8 seconds.  Restarting any computer clears the current state of the computer and software, which were causing the problem. Restarting can even help solve the Internet or Network problems. When it restarts, everything starts fresh, and problems are typically resolved.  For homework, students should proactively power down your Chromebook daily.  By the way, Google updates automatically when devices are restarted so this will keep you up to date with the latest updates, of which there are many. When at school (in-person or virtual) it is important to only have school tabs open, running videos or games in the background will seriously slow down connections for not only yourself but for everyone connected to the school network.  
  • Please only use the charger that came w/ your Chromebook or an authorized replacement from Dell/HP/IBM (replacements are available at school).  Other chargers may not meet safety regulations. There are many 3rd party chargers that have different output voltage and current ratings and may use poor quality components.
  • Chromebooks are a school tool and not a charger for cell phones and other devices.  Some devices, especially new high-speed USB C cables, can cause damage to the Chromebook battery and void the warranty.
  • Chromebooks and all other tech tools should not be subjected to extreme temperature, hot or cold. Please take extra care with regard to temperature fluctuations. If the Chromebook has been left in the cold, do not power it on until it has been brought inside and adjusted to room temperature.  Damage as the result of exposure to extreme elements is not covered by the school insurance policy.

Save Time; Send your Print from Home
Documents sent to the "FollowMe" Printer in the MC now stay in the queue for 16 hours.  So, when you are finished with your homework, send it to the printer, then in the morning (7:30-8) stop by the Media Center, sign in to the printer w/ your student ID and retrieve your document.  
Last-minute printing (8:00-8:10) on a busy morning is not guaranteed; save time, print from home, and retrieve before 8AM!
BTW:  There is also lots of time to print from 2-3:30pm every day!
