Summer Repairs:

For summer chromebook repairs, just drop off chromebooks at our central office at George Daily Auditorium (1800 N 3rd St.) in the lobby. Fill out a short form with contact information and the problem the student is having and put it in the chromebook tub. Bring the charger if it's a charging or power issue and mark on the form that you brought the charger. We will repair it and contact you when it's ready to pick up. Please do this before school starts so the chromebook is working on the first day of school.
