iPad Care and Use

General Use and Screen Care

The iPad screens can damagee 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 on 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).

Only use a clean, soft cloth to clean the screen, no cleansers of any type (i.e. no Clorox wipes).

●Insert cords and cables carefully into the iPad to prevent damage.

●Never leave iPads in a location susceptible to extreme cold or hot weather.


Student iPads can be identified in the following ways:

Identification of student iPads are as follows:

  • Record of serial number, school barcode, and enrollment of iPads in our management system.
  • Registration of district iPad serial numbers with Apple's Device Enrollment Program.  Only Faribault Public Schools can activate iPads. 

  • Student name identification labels on the devices.  Do not remove any labels  from the ipad.

IPads Left in Unsupervised Areas

Do not leave your iPad in an unsupervised area for any circumstance.  Unsupervised areas include the school grounds, lunchroom, computer lab, above lockers, media center, unlocked classrooms, gymnasiums, auditoriums, and hallways.  Any iPad left in these areas is in danger of being stolen.  IPads that are found in an unsupervised area, it will be taken to the media center or main office.   Students are encouraged to take their iPads home every day after school, regardless of whether or not they needed for coursework.

IPads Left at Home

If students leave their iPad at home, they are responsible for getting the coursework completed as if they had their iPad present.
