Parent Resources & Important Steps

Students are expected to bring their charged Chromebook to school each day. Lessons and use will depend on each teacher. It is important that your student charge their device nightly to ensure it is ready for them to connect, discover, create and share.

Each student will receive a charging cord with their Chromebook. Each Chromebook and charging cord will be labeled with an identifying sticker with each students’ name and student ID.

When a Chromebook is charged nightly, the device works the entire school day. Help your student to make charging their device a daily routine. This allows for a successful day of learning and growth.

Protect Your Device

We are excited that we are able to provide each student at PGJH a Chromebook device to further and deepen their learning at PGJH. We are also aware of the possibility of the Chromebook being damaging, lost or stolen. Like other school property that is used by students, if a device is lost, stolen or damaged, a fine will be assessed. Full replacement of a device is $150.00. Repairable damage is $50.00. Damage or lost charging cord (power supply) $30.00. Intentional damage, loss or theft of the device is full cost of replacement. This can add up and be very costly.

The district has provided an insurance option that you can pay to insure the Chromebook device. The cost to insure your Chromebook is $30.00, no deductible, up to one year. The insurance does NOT include the charging cord (power supply).  Insurance will need to be renewed annually. To access the insurance document, click on the link.
