For Kids! Protect Your Chromebook
Your Chromebook is best packed on top or in front of heavier books and remember to keep them away from water bottles!
Make sure you unplug earbuds or headphones from the Chromebook audio jack before packing up to prevent audio jacks breaking off in the audio port!
Careful with your charging cord! Survey your area when charging your device that a pet or sibling cannot bump or pull your device off a table or other.

Building Support Schedule
- Avoid opening attachments or clicking links delivered with emails from unknown contacts.
- Exercise caution with emails from known senders. An email from a known user that has confusing or inconsistent content could be a hack or a scam! Common tactics used in malicious email campaigns include portraying a sense of urgency, impersonating someone of authority, and referencing an invoice or past due payment.
- Call the sender and verify the authenticity of the email.
- Another technique, rather than clicking on an unknown link in an email is to manually browse or navigate to the website by manually typing the URL into your Internet browser instead of clicking links delivered in emails.
