What type of bag or case is needed?
The school will provide a bag, and students are required to use this bag for ChromeBooks. Other school supplies should not be carried in the ChromeBook bag.
How long will a ChromeBook hold a charge?
Students should charge ChromeBooks each night and leave chargers at home. Fully charged ChromeBooks will hold a charge throughout the school day.
Can students print from ChromeBooks at home or school?
No, ChromeBooks will not be set up to print. GHV Middle School is committed to working paperless as much as possible. Students may e-mail or share via Google drive those files they wish to print so that a teacher or parent may print for them.
