Students entering grade 10 will receive a new Chromebook to be used for their remaining years at HCA. Students in grades 10 and above are permitted to use their Chromebooks over summer vacation unless otherwise communicated by school administration.
Parents/Guardians are always encouraged to implement Internet filtering/monitoring at home regardless of the device being used. If filtering is not implemented at home, parents are encouraged to limit private use of Internet-enabled devices and provide public areas where usage can be monitored.
Students should fully charge their Chromebooks prior to each school day.
Students may NOT charge their Chromebooks in class.
Several Charging Stations will be available on campus for the charging of Chromebooks during the school day.
Print jobs may be monitored/administered by technology department personnel.
Abuse of this privilege can result in revoked access to printers.
Student Chromebooks may also be connected to home printers if the student/parent is knowledgeable; HCA provides no support for printing to home printers from Chromebooks.
Warranty & Maintenance
Used Chromebooks issued to students in grade 9 may or may not be covered under warranty.
Parents and students will be responsible for any non-accidental damage to the device as well as any other problems experienced beyond the scope of a typical warranty (including theft/loss).
Chromebooks requiring any maintenance or repair should be brought to the attention of technology department personnel immediately.
Other personal devices may only be used outside of class.
It is highly recommended that students have a pair of headphones or earbuds with them each school day.
Very few (if any) loaner headphones will be available for student use.
