Tech Support

Is your device broken or malfunctioning? Are you receiving error messages? CHPS utilizes a support ticket system. Students must report their issue to their teacher(s), and the teacher will submit a ticket on the student's behalf. Your child will receive a resolution from the IT department typically on the same day!

Student Devices

Our students use HP brand Chromebooks. Our PreK and K students use touchscreen versions that can convert to tablet-style devices. Students in grades 4-12 use standard laptop-style devices like the one pictured above. Chromebooks use the Chrome operating system that is unique from Windows or Apple operating systems.

Logging On for Grades PK-4

Students in PreK through Grade 4 utilize ClassLink QuickCards to log in to their laptops. These QR codes are provided by their teacher. Once their Chromebook is powered on, they'll see the ClassLink login page. After choosing the QuickCard login option, they'll hold the QR up to the webcam to be logged in.

Logging On for Grades 5-12

Students in Grades 4 through 12 will log in to their Chromebooks using their email address and password. Once their Chromebook is powered on, they'll enter in their email, click Next, and then enter their password. Once logged in, the Chrome browser will launch for students to log in to ClassLink using those same credentials.
