What to do if your chromebook is sick?

 

If your chromebook is sick, we can help get it back in working order. To get your chromebook the help it needs, please follow the steps below: 

 

1. Download a "Request for Chromebook Assistance" form and fill it out as completely as possible. You can download a form here or get a form from a teacher. If you do not fill out a form, your chromebook cannot be fixed. **Parents, if you drop off a chromebook and say that it needs to be fixed, your child still must fill out a form. The chromebook will be given back to them until a form is filled out and turned in** 

 

2. Give the filled out form to your teacher and they will get it to Mrs. Gainey. 

 

3. Carry your chromebook with you every day and wait to be called down to the technology office. 

 

4. When you are called, bring your chromebook down and we will start the repair process. 

 

11/6/17--An update about the chromebook repair process. 

 

Right now, the company that repairs the chromebooks is backlogged due to a delay in parts from Dell. 

 

This means that it is taking longer for a chromebook to be repaired once it is sent in.  Students who do not have chromebooks are able to use classroom laptops so they will still have access to technology and not fall behind. 

 

If you have any questions about the status of a repair, please feel free to call or email Mrs. Gainey.
