Is it safe to deliver paper packets to students?
Based on information from the World Health Organization, yes. The likelihood of an infected person contaminating goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, traveled and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low. However, much is still unknown about this coronavirus. It is advisable to handle packages and items that will be sent to students and families while wearing disposable gloves and to wash hands thoroughly after receiving and handling a package either through the mail or from another person. Only those staff designated as facilitating or supporting delivery of distance learning will be allowed to prepare materials for paper packets, and they must do so within the same safety and access guidelines outlined in the questions above.

This insurance plan is offered at a discounted price of only $10. It is a tiered insurance plan that covers 50% of the first repair. If you do not have to make any claims on your insurance, you will get a $5 credit toward your 2020-21 insurance plane.
