Device Safety

  • Protecting your Digital Device by being Safe

    CPS has invested in your future by providing each student with access to digital devices — laptops or Surface Pros while in the classroom, to better prepare students for the technology they will need when they enter post-secondary education and the workplace.

    It is important to remember your safety is of the utmost importance.

    Student Safety Tips

    Remember to always treat your device with care.

    • Never leave your device unattended.
    • Don’t lend your device to anyone.
    • Don’t use your device in places where it may be damaged.
    • Don’t eat or drink around your device.
    • Do not place heavy items such as books on top of your device.

    If you are enrolled in a program that allows you to take a device home — always be safe.

    • Keep your device out of sight.
    • Don't tell others that you have a device.
    • Don't leave your device in the car.
    • Don't use your device in public places.
    • Pay attention to your surroundings.
    • If you're threatened or in danger, give up the device; it can be replaced. 

    When connected to the internet, remember to protect your online privacy.

    CPS Geo-Fence

    Tracking software has been installed and the police are notified when a device that is not registered to leave the school premises passes the geo-fence around the school property.
