Proper Care for Chromebooks

  • When updates are available to install, shutdown the device to install the update during a time when it will not interrupt instruction.
  • Students will keep devices clean.
  • Students will keep food and drinks away from the devices, cords and cases.
  • If technical support is needed, students will enter a ticket using support.swantonschools.org and follow instructions as indicated in the reply of the ticket.
