Seniors - We are offering a one-time special price for Chromebook repairs and special pricing! 

Before next Thursday, November 3rd, we are offering ½ price on all repairs to your Chromebooks. (Protection plan discounts will apply as well!)   We are also allowing seniors to still purchase the device protection plan from now until the 3rd.  (Cost of protection plan is $35 - and will provide protection for damage/repair to your device until the end of the school year)  By having a device protection plan in place when you graduate, you will receive a $20 discount towards the purchase of your Chromebook. 


  • Previous repairs that you may still owe for are not discounted.

  • A lost device, stylus or charger does not qualify for the 1/2 price discount.

  • If you do purchase the protection plan, you will still get discounted repairs after our 1/2 price repair window closes on November 3rd.  

  • You are still responsible for all device repairs/cost up to the point of purchasing the device or returning it back to the Norris School District.




1st time screen break is normally $10 with the plan and $50 without the plan.  During this ½ price window, those repairs would be $5 and $25 respectively. 


You will be able to purchase your touchscreen Chromebook for $50 at graduation if you have a protection plan in place!  So now is the time to get any little repairs done ASAP!  If you decide to turn your device in when you graduate, you will be responsible for any damages/repairs at that time. So now is the time to get the protection plan and take advantage of the ½ price repair window.   Stop in the HS office to take out the protection plan.  If you have repairs that need done, stop by the tech office.
