Take Care

iPad Care
Carefully transport your iPad from class to class every day. Avoid placing weight on the iPad. Never throw or slide an iPad. Never expose an iPad to long-term temperature extremes or direct sunlight.

iPad Screen
The iPad is an electronic device; handle it with care. Never throw a book bag that contains an iPad. Never place an iPad in a book bag that contains food, liquids, heavy, or sharp objects. While the iPad is scratch resistant, it is not scratch proof. Avoid using any sharp object(s) on the iPad. The iPad screen is glass and is vulnerable to cracking. Never place heavy objects on top of the iPad and never drop your iPad. Careful placement in your backpack is important.

iPad Battery
The iPad should be charged, using the provided wall charger, and brought to school ready to use each day. Fully charged iPad batteries will typically last 9-10 hours of use. Waiting to charge the iPad until the charge is low (less than 20% life or red indicator light) will extend the battery life. It is the student’s responsibility to charge the iPad to ensure it is ready for use in school each day. Failure to do so may result in the student’s inability to participate in classroom learning activities.

iPad Case
The iPad comes with a school issued Belkin case. The purpose of the case is to protect the iPad, especially while the iPad is being transported. When not in use, closing the iPad case will save battery life and protect the screen. The iPad must remain in the school issued protective case at all times. Your building principal will decide if students may decorate and individualize this case (stickers, etc.). No stickers or any other items should be attached to the iPad itself unless placed there by school staff.
 

iPad Cleaning

iPads do not respond well to liquids. Avoid applying liquids to the iPad. The iPad can be cleaned with a soft, slightly water-dampened, lint-free cloth. You can use eye glass cleaner on a cloth, but avoid getting moisture in the openings. Do not use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean the iPad. Use of unapproved cleaners may remove the protective film covering the face of the iPad.
