Summer Tech. Storage:
Summer break will be here before we know it! To prepare for janitorial summer cleaning, Ashleigh and I are asking all teachers to disconnect equipment (Promethean Boards, laptops, docking stations, document cameras, scanners, printers, etc.) and neatly wrap up cords so they can be safely stored over the summer months. We are asking for more individual staff help with this due to technology work hours being very limited this summer.
Laptops with charging cords and docking stations can be stored in classroom cabinets for easy set up in the fall. Please wrap them up neatly to secure them and keep them together. If you wish to take your laptop home over the summer, please download and fill out the Laptop Checkout form HERE. Turn the completed form into me or Ashleigh.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable and the power cord from the wall. Neatly coil up the cords and secure with Velcro ties and set them on top of the printer. The printer can be moved to a counter in your classroom or simply stay on its table.
Please disconnect the cords from your computer. Coil up neatly and tie cords to camera neck with velcro.
Promethean Boards: Please unplug the power cord from the wall and tuck up, out of the way. Disconnect the usb cord from your laptop/docking station and coil up the cord close to the wall.
Chromebooks may stay on their designated shelves over the summer. Please do unplug the chargers from the wall and simply lay them on the devices on the shelves.
Student Computers in Classrooms:
Simply disconnect the power cords and Ethernet cables from the wall, coil up and neatly secure the cables with the devices so that they stay together throughout the summer moving/cleaning.
As always, if you have any questions or would like help with this, please let us know! We are always available to help.
