Chromebook Bag Options
All students in 6th through 12th Grade will be issued a school-owned Chromebook. All 6-12 student's chromebooks are a Lenovo 300e 11" style chromebook. For the 23-24 school year, middle school chromebooks will no longer have the Gumdrop case installed, as these were more hindrance than help in year's past.
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 (various styles available)
- 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.
- Otterbox: Another nice always-on option.
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.
