iPad Care & Maintenance

Students are expected to care for their iPad both at school and at home. iPads should not be subjected to excessive weight, temperature extremes or direct sunlight. To prevent damage, cords and cables must be carefully inserted into the device. 

iPad Screen

Device screens can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. iPads must be in the school issued case at all times. Even with this protection, caution must be exercised. The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure on the screen. This pressure can occur with an overloaded backpack. Please be mindful that devices are sensitive to weather conditions and should not be stowed in extreme weather conditions such as heat, cold, or rain.

  • When the iPad is being transported in a backpack, exercise caution in loading the iPad and handling the backpack.
  • Do not lean on the top of the device.
  • Do not place anything on or near the device that could put pressure on the screen.
  • Clean the screen with a soft dry cloth or anti-static cloth without cleaning solution.
  • Do not bump the device against lockers, walls, car doors, floors, etc, even when contained in a backpack.
