  • Three tips to keep your Chromebook working properly:

    • Everyday, your child should click on the sign-out and shutdown buttons on the Chromebook. This is how apps update.
    • Weekly your child should click in the upper right hand corner, click on the three dots, scroll down to More Tools, Clear Browsing Data, and in the Time Range, click the drop down arrow and choose All time, Clear Data. **Best time to do so would be at the end of the school day.
    • If the Dashboard is not opening, click on the WSG button located in the top right corner and click sync . (You may have to click on the puzzle piece to see the WSG button)
