Chromebook Insurance Information (2nd - 6th Grade)

It has come to our attention that some families who purchased the Chromebook insurance for this year were inadvertently refunded the fee. If you wish to have this added back to your account, or did not initially take the insurance and you would like it added, please fill out this form. The insurance is $25 and covers accidental damage. More details can be found at www.oasd.org/chromebooks. Please contact our helpdesk at 262-560-2126 or helpdesk@oasd.org with any questions. We apologize for any inconvenience and confusion this may have caused.
