Statement from the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools addressing a report of a Chromebook (laptop) malfunction and a student…

“First, we want to remind you to only charge these devices when they need charging. Never leave Chromebooks plugged in and unsupervised for long periods of time, like overnight. Prolonged charging and limited ventilation can damage the battery.

Also, it is best to always use the devices on surfaces that allow for proper ventilation like a desk or table. https://myfox8.com/news/wsfcs-responds-to-report-of-chromebook-malfunction/
