How to Care for your Device
  • Must keep the protective case that you were given during device distribution on your devices at all times.
  • DO NOT carry your device in your backpack! 
    Backpacks are too heavy and the weight can crack the screen of your device.  This will count as your one accidental break. 
  • Clean the screen with a microfiber cloth only.  Do not clean with water.
  • Do not eat food or drink near your device.
  • Charge your device each night so that is fully charged and ready to come to school EACH DAY. 
  • If you have a Surface Pen you MUST write your name and/or decorate your pen so it can be identified as yours. 
  • Chargers should not come to school but if they do they MUST have your name on them!!
  • If you have a Surface Pro, check and run updates regularly.  

How to Clear Browsing History (Cache)
What is Cache, Cookies, and History and 
Why Should You Clear it...

Each time you access a file through your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc), the browser caches (i.e., stores) it so it doesn't have to keep retrieving the same files or images from the remote web site each time you click Back or Forward. You should periodically clear the cache to allow your browser to function more efficiently.

A cookie is a file created by a web browser, at the request of a web site, that is stored on a computer. These files typically store user-specific information such as selections in a form, shopping cart contents, or authentication data. Browsers will normally clear cookies that reach a certain age, but clearing them manually may solve problems with web sites or your browser.

A browser's history is a log of sites that you visit. When you press a browser's Back button, you are moving back one entry in the history log. Browsers will normally clear history at regular intervals, but you may want to clear it manually for privacy reasons.
