LAPTOP INSURANCE INFORMATION

Why? In the last year we had 2 laptops stolen, and about 15% of them damaged with significant cost to each student. Much of this is carelessness. We constantly remind students to PROTECT THE TECH. Unfortunately, some don’t. We strongly encourage each Minarets family to get Laptop Insurance.

This agreement must be signed in ParentSquare before new laptop is issued.
