    Chromebook Insurance

    Attached please find the new flyers for student Chromebook insurance.  The cost is $21 for the year with an option to add coverage for the charger for an additional $5. We highly recommend that students/guardians to choose to pay the $26 for the device and charger as the cost of a charger alone exceeds that cost.  This year, the cost of a Chromebook is $300.
