Expectations for Year 4, 5 and 6 Students

Expectations for Year 4, 5 and 6 Students 2015
(Holy Family iPad policy/user agreement will be discussed with students & parents prior to use in the classroom)

Below are the expectations for student use of the iPad at School.

  1. Bring the iPad each day to school, fully charged. It's best to get in the habit of charging the iPad at the end of the day each day. That way, you get a full night's charge and will be ready for the start of school the next day. IMPORTANT: Be sure that you are using the charger that came with the iPad, not an iPhone charger. The power requirements are higher for the iPad. Also make sure that you are charging from a wall outlet, not a computer, as the charging time will be much quicker.
  2. Keep the iPad in its case.  Keeping it in the case at all times helps to ensure it stays protected from accidental wear and tear.
  3. Store the iPad in a safe place when not in use. If you are not using the iPad during some time in class, be sure to store it away in a safe location. Place the device in the area designated by your class teacher.
  4. Use the iPad for school-related activities: During free time at school, such as recess and lunch, the iPad is intended for school-related activities, not games or videos. 
  5. Keep electronic communication school related. During instructional activities, electronic communication is to be focused solely on the activity at hand. No non-school related e-communication is allowed during the school day.

Proper Care and Handling of the iPad
Here are some basic tips for handling your iPad in the proper manner. 


In addition to your iPad, you will need a case and a set of headphones/earbuds. You may also have a stylus. You will want to find a consistent place to store and care for your accessories as well. Unplug your headphones when not in use, as this provides an opportunity for breakage when you store the iPad.

  1. Case
