Chromebook Bag Options
All students in 6th through 8th Grade will be issued a school-owned 11" Dell Chromebook (Model 3120 - manufactured after March 2015) and students in 9th through 12th grade will be issued an 11" Lenovo 330e Chromebook on the first day of school. It will be the responsibility of the student to protect the unit with a case or bag for protection and transporting between home and school. While a backpack with a separate padded pouch is adequate, a separate case is the most ideal because students tend to forget they actually have a breakable object inside their backpacks.
A few cases to consider, as recommended by Tech Director, Shelly Bailey:
- A Higher Ground Capsule is highly recommended and would be nice by itself or would fit inside a pocket in a backpack. Click here for this case, which can be purchased with an optional strap and power pocket. Higher Ground offers other 11" options. Click here to see all 11" option.
- A Lacdo Laptop Sleeve Case ordered through Amazon, found here, would be adequate for a separate carrying case, although it does not have a shoulder strap.
- A Belkin Always-on Sleeve ordered through Amazon, found here, is 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.
