DISTRICT ISSUED LAPTOPS and HOTSPOT INSURANCE INFORMATION: If you were issued a device between 8/17/2020-9/14/2020 and MISSED the 9/14 Insurance purchase deadline, you are able to bring the laptop to school to be inspected for damage. If there is NOT damage to the device, then you will be allowed to go online to our school website and purchase the insurance within 72 hours of that date of inspection. The inspection date will be written on the existing contract. This will be a one-time fee per specific device for the school year to cover potential incidents like cracked screens, missing keyboard keys, damaged plastics, liquid spills, and theft. Funds raised from this program will be used to repair damaged devices, and replace devices.
For devices issued from 9/15/2020 on, parents will have the option to purchase a $25 Insurance policy for laptop/computers and $15 for a Hotspot from each school site to cover accidental damage and theft WITHIN 72 HOURS of the device being issued. This will be a one-time fee per specific device for the school year to cover potential incidents like cracked screens, missing keyboard keys, damaged plastics, liquid spills, and theft.
