Laptop Care and Maintenance

Carefully transport your device. Avoid placing weight on the device.  Never throw or slide your laptop.  Never expose a laptop to long-term temperature extremes or direct sunlight.  An automobile is not a good place to store any electronic device.

Laptop Case

Learners will receive a case/cover for their device.  When not in use, closing the laptop screen will save battery life and protect the screen. All devices must remain in a protective case at all times. No stickers or any other items should be attached to the laptop itself unless placed there by school staff.

Laptop Screen

Never throw a book bag that contains a laptop computer . Never place your laptop in a book bag that contains food, liquids, heavy, or sharp objects. While the laptop screen is scratch resistant, it is not scratch proof.  Avoid using any sharp object(s) on the laptop. The laptop screen is glass and is vulnerable to cracking. Never place heavy objects on top of your device and never drop your device. 
Careful placement in your backpack is important. 

Laptops do not respond well to liquids. Avoid applying liquids to the laptop. These devices can be cleaned with a soft, slightly water-dampened, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in the openings. Do not use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean the screen of your laptop. Use of unapproved cleaners may remove the protective film covering the face of the laptop.
