iPad Care and Protection


Taking Care of Your iPad

The safety and care of your iPad is your responsibility, however we have included many helpful suggestions and tips in this section in order to help you successfully do so.

General Precautions

  • The  iPad  is  your  property, but when you are on campus you will abide by the tenets of this school’s iPad Policy and Acceptable Use Policy  when you are here.
  • Use a clean, soft cloth when cleaning your iPad’s screen.  Do not use cleaning agents of any kind.
  • Cords and cables must be inserted carefully into the iPad to prevent damage.  Be careful.
  • Your iPad should never be left in an unlocked locker, unlocked car, or any unsupervised area.  Carry it with you everywhere.
  • Students are responsible for keeping their iPad’s battery charged for school each day.  A limited number if chargers will be available from the Technology Office, should you need one in an emergency, but you will have to leave something on the deposit
  • Students must keep their iPad in its protective case, at all times, while on campus.

Recommended iPad Cases

The importance of a sturdy case for your iPad cannot be underestimated.  Although a good case can be a significant additional expense, it’s worth every penny.  Consider it a very reasonably priced insurance policy.  We recommend any of the following protective cases:

The Griffin Survivor iPad case for care and protection of your student iPad in the Saint Stephen's Episcopal School iPad program.
The ZAGGkeys PROplus iPad case for care and protection of your student iPad in the Saint Stephen's Episcopal School iPad program.
The Otterbox Defender iPad case for care and protection of your student iPad in the Saint Stephen's Episcopal School iPad program.
The Lifeproof nűűd iPad case for care and protection of your student iPad in the Saint Stephen's Episcopal School iPad program.

Caring for Your Screen

Your iPad’s screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment.   The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure being placed on them.  They are made of glass and will crack.  Please take the following precautions with your iPad:

  • Do not lean on the top of the iPad when it is closed.
  • Do not place anything near the iPad that could put pressure on the screen.
  • 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.  Use of harsh chemicals will damage the screen.
  • Do not “bump” the iPad against lockers, walls, car doors, floors, etc. as it will eventually break the screen.
