iPad Care and Use

Screen Care

  • The iPad screens can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment.
  • The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure on the screen.
  • Do not lean on the top of the iPad.
  • Do not place anything near the iPad that could put pressure on the screen (keep this in mind when placing your iPad in your backpack).
  • Do not place anything in the carrying case that will press against the cover.
  • Clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth or anti-static cloth.
  • Do not bump the iPad against lockers, walls, or car.
  • Screen protectors are allowed but not required.

iPad Cases

  • The protective cases provided with iPads have sufficient padding to protect the iPad from normal treatment and provide a suitable means for carrying the device within the school.
  • iPads should always be within the protective case provided by the district.
  • Alternative cases are not recommended.
  • Damages that occur when the iPad is not in the case will not be covered by the iPad protection plan. 

General Care

  • Only use a clean, soft cloth to clean the screen, no cleansers of any type (i.e. no Clorox wipes).
  • Only Apple-certified accessories can be used for charging the iPad.
  • Cords and cables must be inserted carefully into the iPad to prevent damage.
  • iPads and school-issued cases must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, labels, or any other physical alterations that are not the property of Faribault Public Schools.
  • iPads must never be left in an unlocked locker, unlocked car, or any unsupervised area.
  • iPads must never be left in a location susceptible to extreme cold or hot weather.
  • Students are responsible for having the iPad battery adequately charged before school each day.
