Yes, and students will have access to their lockers if needed when they return from the game.
We have not had, nor do we expect many iPads to be damaged. We have purchased one of the most protective cases we can to ensure that the iPad is safe, but in the event that damage does occur, CPS offers an insurance plan. The insurance plan has a one-time cost of $50 to enroll.
The insurance plan covers any accidental damage to the iPad with a $50/incident cost for up to 2 incidents/year. For example, if a student accidentally breaks the screen, you will be asked to pay a $50 incident cost and the cost of the repair will be covered. If the student breaks the screen a second time, you will be asked to pay a $50 incident cost again and the repair will be covered. If there is damage a 3rd time, you will be responsible for the total cost of the repair.
The iPad case, charger, and sync cable are not covered by the insurance plan. You will be responsible for the full cost of any damage to any of these accessories not due to normal wear and tear. Intentional damage to the iPad is not covered. Loss of the iPad and/or theft of the iPad is not covered.
If you enroll in the insurance program, the student will be able to keep them in their possession until the end of the school year. That includes over winter and spring break. They will be returned to the school before summer break.
There is no backup strategy set up for the iPad, however, certain apps are based in the cloud. For example, anything created in Evernote, or any of the Google Apps (Docs, Sheets, Slides, and anything in Google Drive) are all stored in the internet, so they are backed up. Other apps are not internet-based and would not be backed up. Some of these apps might allow you to manually back up the information to someplace like Google Drive. For example, documents in Notability are stored locally and not backed up but you can set up Notability to backup to Google Drive.
At their discretion, Otterbox MAY agree to send you replacement parts for the damaged case at no cost other than shipping. We would suggest that you fill out a warranty claim on their website (https://www.otterbox.com/en-us/warranty-claim) to see if they will send you a replacement part for the damaged case. Any student whose lid does not securely attach to the case needs to see Mr. Reilly for a temporary lid until the replacement that you ordered comes in.
