Laptop Insurance is now available
Students in grades 6-12 can now purchase insurance for their laptop that will allow them to take the device home.  This is the second year that the district has partnered with the Worth Ave Group to add coverage to the devices if parents decide to do so.  Please note, this is optional and is only required if students would like to have the ability to take the device home.  The cost to fully insure the device is $62 and checks are made payable to the South Side Area School District.  Students and parents are required to sign off on the District-Owned Devices handbook which is available in the MS/HS office prior to insurance being offered.  If you have any questions about the insurance coverage or process, please contact Mike Lewis, Assistant Superintendent at 724-573-9581, ext. 2612.  Thank you.
