Repair Estimate List

**Repairs for misuse or negligence will be charged to the parent at the cost of part and/or repair.  Repairs made for malfunction or defect will not be billed.**

Parent Laptop Agreement

During summer registration, parents/guardians will be required to sign off on a laptop agreement confirming they have read the above policies and understand the financial responsibilities assumed with the laptop.  This consent form will be available in Harmony as part of online registration.


Western Boone is not requiring parents to purchase insurance for the laptop.  However, parents will be responsible for the cost of repairs and or replacement if the device or its components are lost, stolen or damaged due to improper care or neglect.  Parents are welcome to find a company to purchase insurance if they so choose.  A reputable company that provides insurance for laptops is Worth Avenue Group.  Worth Avenue Group (www.worthavegroup.com) insures laptops at reasonable costs with low or no deductible.  Regardless of the company, please insure the device for the full replacement cost of $475.
