Attention students - it is important that Chromebooks are properly used during and after the school day.  Please note that a function has been added to the school's Chromebooks which does not allow users to clear their history.  As a result, school officials have the ability to see all history of the person who is borrowing the school issued Chromebook.  Please be smart and follow the acceptable use policies to support your learning.
