Parent/Student Device Handbook

Q: A student of mine forgot to bring his device/charger to school. What should they do?

A: If it is early in the day, we will encourage them to call home for a parent to drop off the device. If a student needs a charger, allow them to borrow one from a classmate. Provide a paper copy of work if possible.

Q: A student of mine needs to replace a lost/damaged power cord or headphones. How can we do this?

A: They can buy one through the school for $60+ or through Amazon. HP Replacement Cords are here. Lenovo replacement cords are here. Replacement headphones are here.


Parents/guardians have the option to purchase low-cost student device insurance through the PWCS-approved third-party vendor, Securranty.

If purchased, the insurance covers unlimited repairs or replacements for everything from broken screens, lost chargers, and accidental damage, with a zero deductible for one year on a school-issued device. The insurance cost is $29.95, which may be significantly less than repair or replacement costs without insurance.

Replacement costs (up to $308) for damaged or lost devices can be found in the PWCS Parent/Student Digital Device Handbook.

Insurance must be purchased within 30 days of your student receiving their device (and before any failure, damage or loss occurs to the device).
