Use In & Out of School
The iPads are intended for use at school each day. In addition to teacher expectations for iPad use, school messages, announcements, calendars and homework pages may be accessed using the iPad. Students must bring their iPad to all classes unless specifically instructed not to do so by their teacher.
Students must purchase insurance in order to bring their iPad home.
iPads Left at Home
If students leave their iPad at home, they are responsible for getting the course work completed as if they had their iPad present. If a student repeatedly leaves their iPad at home, they will lose at home privileges of the iPad and will have to leave their iPads in school.
iPad Undergoing Repair
Loaner iPads may be issued to students when they leave their iPads for repair with Mrs. Nagle or Mrs. McGraw in the Media Center. Students must fill out an NPHS iPad Repair Form online. The media specialists will assist students in obtaining a loaner iPad.
Charging your iPad’s Battery
iPads must be brought to school each day in a fully charged condition. Students need to charge their iPads each evening (but not overnight). Repeat violations will result in students losing at home privileges.
