Student Macbook insurance

We will begin distributing Macbooks to students this week at the High School and Middle School campuses. We would like to make you aware of some insurance options for your child’s Macbook through Worth Ave. Group. Each option covers the student’s Macbook for one year (date-to-date). There are various deductibles to choose from with affordable premiums. You can obtain coverage three ways:

1. Online– https://my.worthavegroup.com/bullardisdtx

2. Mail– Download a form and mail with a check to Worth Ave. Group, P.O. Box 2077, Stillwater, Ok. 74076

3. Phone– Call 1-800-620-3307

Bullard ISD will not take any money or forms for Worth Ave. Group insurance . It is your responsibility to obtain the insurance policy. It is also your responsibility to notify Worth Ave. Group should your child change computers during the school year.

Good news – IS loop open

Good news for parents

L&L Asphalt completed the Intermediate School loop, giving us a much better option for dropping off and picking up Intermediate School students. The map below shows IS parents entering the loop, traveling around and taking a right on the front circle for drop offs and pick ups.

With the loop open, IS parents can exit to HS344 on the one-way or continue back towards the Middle School and exit HW344 or turn back to School House Road.

The year, MS parents will pick up their seventh grade students in the front and parents will pick up their eighth grade students in the back.
