Digital Agreements

Dear students and parents,

After a whirlwind year and a rather busy summer, it is time to start handing out student devices! One thing that we are modifying this year is our insurance policy. Due to the uncertainty of this year, we will only have two options for insurance. Option 1 will still be the $50 insurance plan, which will cover one broken computer incident. Option 2 does not require payment upfront, but the student/parent can be held liable for up to $200 in damages. There will not be an option 3(Leaving the computer at school).

Due to safety precautions, we have been working on a digital document platform. This platform will allow parents to pre-sign the required acceptable use policy, cord policy and to pick an insurance option. This should dramatically speed up computer pickup this year! We are also recommending that if parents pick the $50 computer insurance option that they pay using a credit or debit card. Due to the pandemic, we are waiving the 3% processing fee for using a credit or debit card. We will also accept cash or a check. We are planning on having 2 nights for computer pick up Tuesday, August 18th and Wednesday, August 19th from 5-7 P.M.

Instructions for using the digital documents platform.

This year is going to look a little different for computer pickup. Please come around the backside of the school by the playground and you will be directed from there. Please stay in your car at all times! See the image below for traffic flow.
