All Chromebooks are property of NLHS and while assigned to a student throughout their high school career, they are collected prior to summer break each year. Our 1-to-1 Initiative allows students (grades 9-11) to check out the devices for use throughout the school year. The Chromebooks are distributed during registration for (grades 10-12) and the first week of school for (grade 9, new students and any student who has not yet picked it up).
Before a student is issued a Chromebook, parents must complete two tasks.

The Chromebook Initiative allows students to keep their assigned Chromebook throughout the school year. These devices, however, must be collected at the end of each school year to ensure they are in good working condition. If there are issues or repairs needed, those will be done during the summer months. Only upon graduation from NLHS, can a student purchase their device for $25.
Each student will receive their originally assigned Chromebook during registration for (grades 10-12) and/or the first week of school for (grade 9, new students and any student who has not yet picked it up) the following school year. Any images, documents, or items saved on the student's hard drive should still be intact.
If your Chromebook breaks or needs a repair, please bring it to the Instructional Resource Center (Library) as soon as possible. If you have purchased insurance, there will be no cost to you for the repairs. If you do not have insurance, costs will be determined according to the issue.
The Instructional Resource Center (Library) has a couple of loaners to be used in the event that a Chromebook needs repair. The loaners are not used when a student forgets to bring his/her device to school. Remember, it is the student's responsibility to not only care for the Chromebook, but also to keep it charged and stored in a safe place.
