This year we are handling insurance a little different. We would like to welcome you to a new parent insurance portal. This portal gives you the opportunity to purchase the optional insurance for our devices. There are two plans depending on the type of device that your child will be using. One plan covers the Chromebooks and the other plan covers the iPads. Within each plan you will have two options. The first option is our basic plan, and it will cover accidental damage to the device. The second option is our Ultimate plan which covers accidental damage, loss, theft, perils, burglary, and robbery. Please see the attached flyer for more information on ourinsurance options. You can click here to access the new insurance portal. Please know that any claims or repairs will still be handled by the district. You do not need to file a claim, you just need to have your child turn their device into the school and we will handle the rest.
