Protect your power and volume buttons by putting the power button side UP in your backpack, not down. Several student’s power buttons breaking because students are not careful with how they carry their Chromebook. This is a delicate, small component and needs to stay protected in your bag. We highly recommend a case for your Chromebook, but if you choose to not use one, your best bet is keeping that side of your Chromebook facing UP in your bag so it doesn’t get damaged when you put your bag down on the ground.
Please be careful when you use your headphones! Pull them gently out of the headphone jack if you use them and remove them from your Chromebook by pulling on the cord as close to the body of your Chromebook as possible, rather than from the far end of the headphones near the earbuds. Pulling them further up on the headphone cords away from the body of your Chromebook may damage the port where they plug in.
Refrain from charging your phone from your Chromebook. This damages the battery, which could result in a replacement needed.
