Chromebook Bag Options
All students in 6th through 12th Grade will be issued a school-owned Chromebook. Middle school students will be issued a Lenovo 300e Chromebook 2nd Gen Type 82CE, while high school students will be given a Lenovo 300e Chromebook Type 81H0.
Middle school chromebooks will be issued with a Gumdrop case that must remain on the unit at all times. High school students can purchase their own cases to protect the unit. While a backpack with a separate padded pouch might seem adequate, a separate case is the most ideal because students tend to forget they actually have a breakable object inside their backpacks.
A few sources to consider when looking for a case.
- Higher Ground
- Gumdrop Cases
- Lacdo Laptop Sleeve: would be adequate for a separate carrying case, although it does not have a shoulder strap.
- Belkin Always-on Sleeve: a nice option for those students that might want a case that remains on the Chromebook at all times.
The cases above are a recommendation only. You are certainly free to choose your own by searching for a case that will fit a device measuring 11.7"W x 8.5D x .83"H, keeping in mind that you will want something that has adequate padding to protect the device. As covered in the Chromebook Handbook, payment for device damages may be required by the student.
