- 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.

Good Digital Hygiene, Student Tech Tips, & Troubleshooting
As SJR revisits virtual learning, it is vital that we practice good digital hygiene. Webcams, necessary for Google MEETs, can be greatly affected by wifi strength. Playing games and watching videos during school hours will have negative effects on MEETs.
Best Practices for Remote Learning
- Move your chromebook closer to your wifi router
- Limit the number of windows/tabs open on your Chromebook
- Only have tabs necessary for schoolwork open during the school day
- Do not have other laptops, smart phones, or smart TVs running games or videos during school hours
- Even having Alexa play music or using a microwave oven can disrupt your wifi connection
in order to protect the integrity of the MEET the camera will shut off but the MEET will continue
All technology works best when its operating system is up-to-date. Chromebooks seamlessly update when powered off and back on. When the OS is not up-to-date, the device may not function properly. It is very important that chromebooks are powered off and on daily to keep them functioning at their best. This 10 second procedure keeps everything running at optimal performance.

This analogy (found online) may explain it best.
Internet service is not unlimited. Whatever network you are attached to takes a piece of the available internet, so the number of other people on their own networks can also affect your connectivity and internet speed. Think of the overall internet like a birthday cake. Each network takes a piece. The more networks that want some, the smaller the pieces will have to be to serve everyone. Your household/school then has to share their one piece of cake with every connected device on your individual network. Just because more people want to use the internet, the capacity of the internet does not increase. It is fixed. You aren’t baking another cake in the middle of the birthday party because some extra guests showed up.
Specific home network troubleshooting tips can be found directly inside each Google Meet
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!
