All students will be issued a Chromebook free of charge.  We strongly encourage purchasing the device insurance to cover any damages that your child's device may incur.  Students will be allowed to have only one outstanding balance for a repair on their account. That is, if your child turns in his or her device for repair, the device will be repaired and the chromebook returned.  Should a second repair become necessary, the cost of the first damage will need to be cleared before the device can be repaired and returned again.  Should your child lose the chromebook or incur severe damage necessitating replacement of the device, that entire cost must be paid before a new additional device will be issued.
Remember DO NOT forget the NMSHive wireless. If you do so, you will not be able to access the internet at school.
