Student Chromebook Insurance
South Windsor Public Schools offers insurance for school issued Chromebooks for the cost of $30 through Worth Ave. Insurance. Insurance coverage is for one year and expires August 21, 2020. We encourage 100% participation in the insurance program. Students are held personally and monetarily responsible for any loss or damage caused by intentional vandalism or negligence concerning assigned district electronic devices. The insurance will cover stolen devices with a police report and accidental damage. It will not cover lost devices or malicious acts. To join the insurance program, you may pay online or make out a check for $30 to SWPS and write Chromebook Insurance and the student’s ID in the memo line and hand it in to the main office of your student's school.

If your family has a financial hardship and cannot afford insurance, please contact your child’s associate principal in writing. Students who receive free or reduced lunch are eligible to have insurance waived. New Free and Reduced Meal applications will need to be completed for the 2019/20 school year. See below for the link to the Addendum A form. These are available online over the summer and also sent home on the first day of school. Part of the application has an Addendum A where you can allow our office to contact Food Service on your behalf and your benefit will be shared. Please contact the Food Service Specialist, Lisa Clayton, if you have questions at 860-474-1499.
If you wish to waive insurance and have not indicated this in the student information update in the parent portal, please click on the link below, print out, sign and return to your child's school.
