Google Chromebooks Insurance

Insurance policies can be purchased for the chromebooks at the AR attendance office. Purchasing insurance is highly encouraged, as it will save you money in the event that accidental damage to the chromebook occurs. It is suggested that all students buy a protective case for their chromebook to avoid damaging them. Carrying your chromebook in a backpack along with other books and no protective casing often results in a cracked screen. Chargers are considered accessories and therefore not covered by insurance, so students will be held financially responsible in the event that they damage their chromebook charger. Replacement chargers can be purchased in the AR Office for $20. Policies are $22 for 1 year of coverage with a $0 deductible. If you would like to purchase insurance online, you can do so at the following link:

AR Club Protocol

At AR our clubs end every school year and in order to have an official club you must start it over each year. To start a club you must first get an advisor. Then get a club sign up form in the attendance office, fill it out and get it signed by your new advisor who can help you decide whether or not you need to take notes, elect leaders and have a treasurer. You need to decide when and where you would like to meet, and ask your advisor if that time and space are available on the SSC club calendar. If it is, ask them to save that spot for your club for the year or semester. You use this same process for any activities your club would like to schedule. Send your announcement to by 12pm the day before you would like it to run. Make sure you use proper grammar and spelling while also using proper punctuation. If you are unsure, run it by your advisor first. When it is ready to send make sure that you also CC your advisor so that Sami is assured your advisor knows about the announcement. If you will be raising any money remember that your advisor needs to know about every activity even if it is off school grounds.
