Want to make Chromebook applications (including student testing) run better? Technology needs your help! We all need to turn off our Chromebooks once a week - students, staff, everyone. 

Introducing "Shut Down Fridays." Every Friday, let's turn off our Chromebooks so that they will update. It's easy to do! Simply click the power button that displays on the lower left side of the screen if nobody is signed in to the the device. If a user is signed in, they need to click the little picture in the lower right of the screen and then click the power button. That's it! The Chromebook will do the rest.

If we could all celebrate Shut Down Fridays for classroom Chromebooks, Chromebooks that go home with students, and those Chromebooks in carts, all applications (especially testing) will run much better.

If you have any questions, feel free to email Herb at our Help Desk or call him at 557-8333. He is always happy to help!

  • The Help Desk is your first resource for technology problems. Our techs will try to resolve your technology issue over the phone. If a site visit is required, a service ticket will be created and a tech dispatched. All initial contact should be over the phone so we can evaluate and resolve the situation most effectively.​

  • The Help Desk is designed to help resolve immediate problems. If you already know that you need a tech to come to your site, please create a service ticket instead (using School Dude).​

  • This service is offered to NVUSD staff members only. Please do not have students call the Help Desk -- not even on behalf of a staff member.
