Due to an increase in insurance premium for the 2014-2015 school year, we are posting a new insurance selection form here. Parents that selected a one year policy last year or are new to the HS this year should download and complete a new form by the start of the school year. This form must be completed as well as the 1:1 agreement before the ablets will be distributed to your student. Parents that selected a multi-year policy last year do not need to complete the Insurance Selection form for the current school year. This form can be downloaded here, or you can log into Infosnap and download the updated form from there.Insurance Selection Form
