    To report a stolen SPPS iPad: If the crime is in progress, call 911 immediately, then call your school to report the theft. Lost iPads should be reported to the school.

    backpack Carry the iPad to and from school in a backpack or school bag. The iPad must never be visible or used when waiting at a bus stop or train station, riding public bus or light rail train,  or when walking around the community.
    eye Always keep an eye on your iPad, especially if you find yourself in a busy area of school like the lunchroom or athletic field, or in a public space like a coffee shop or library where it could easily be taken.
    locker Keep your iPad with you whenever possible. If an iPad is not needed for a class, or your teacher has told you not to bring the iPad to class, store it in a locked locker or classroom storage cart.
    lock Keep your passcode private. Your unique iPad passcode helps protect your files and personal information. It’s important that you do not share your passcode with anyone else.
    Find My iPad Enable the “Find My iPad” feature so that your iPad can be located if it is misplaced.
    SPPS ID Label

    Take care of the label that is on the back of your iPad. The label has a unique number that identifies the iPad as the one that was loaned to you by Saint Paul Public Schools.
