What if I need to charge my machine during the school day?

Students are expected to bring a fully charged machine to school each day. The minimum specifications require devices to have at least seven hours of battery life. In case of emergency, there are charging outlets available throughout the high school building, including in the media center. There are currently 20 charging lockers, each of which can charge one laptop/Chromebook and up to two phones/USB-charged devices. These are stationed in areas protected by video cameras and where students might lock their machines during gym class, lunch, or an after school activity. These lockers have programmable codes that are unique to each user. In the event of an emergency, school administration is able to access the contents of these lockers.
