Chromebook Issues?

If you are experiencing issues with Chromebooks there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot before a tech ticket is written for repair.

  1. Do a quick log out.  Hold Ctrl + Shift and Q+Q. This will completely log your student out. 

  1. Log back in and follow these steps to update Chrome.

  1. If you are experiencing issues with the Chromebook microphone please check the following setting.

  1. Take a moment and review this chart that may help your student navigate your Chromebook and work more efficiently.

  1. Check to make sure that your student has only school related tabs open. The fewer tabs open the less bandwidth is required.

  1. Finally, you may do a reimage/reset on the Chromebook. Here are the step by step directions.

       If you are unable to resolve your Chromebook issues please contact me during school hours so we can coordinate repairs and replacements.

Mission Statement:

It is our mission in the Artondale Library to provide books and information in a rich and challenging learning environment. Our library serves preschool through 5th-grade classes on both fixed and flex schedules. The library is open to students before school, during lunch recesses, and after school. The Primary Grades (K-2) can come to the library during their lunch recess on Tuesdays and Thursdays while the Intermediate Grades (3-5) have Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Students and staff use the library in a variety of ways:

  • to research using print and electronic resources
  • recreational or free time reading
  • computer work
  • classes in information retrieval, evaluation, and synthesis
  • books on tape, knitting club, mentoring

We are indebted to the dedication and hard work of the 5th grade Student Librarians who handle the circulation of library materials for the daily classes visiting the library. Our library is also extremely grateful to the constant and tireless work of our community volunteers who somehow manage to not become discouraged by the stacks of books needing to be shelved or repaired.
