*It is the student's responsibility to avoid damage to the Chromebook*In order to maintain the 1-to-1 ratio of devices at Heritage we rely on students to be responsible users. If your student is careless with their device and it results in damage they will be provided a loaner while it is being repaired. If they have another issue requiring repair they will not be given a loaner, but will need to use one of the shared classroom devices. Students are welcome to bring in personally owned devices if preferred.
