Livermore Public Library
The Livermore Public Library will run the Winter Reading Program for the second year in a row. This program is intended to encourage all students to continue reading during their winter break holidays. From December 1 to January 15, participants will track their time spent reading or listening to books and earn raffle tickets for fun prizes like a LEGO set, a Polaroid camera, spa day, and more. The more they read, the more tickets they get. They can track reading online via the free Beanstack App or on paper gameboards from the library. See flyer below.

LVJUSD is rolling out a Chromebook Insurance Program for our families for the remainder of this school year. For $20.00 the Chromebook will be covered for accidental damage, loss, and theft. The deadline to enroll is December 31st.
For damage claims, once the claimed is filed and you receive an approved claim number, LVJUSD will bill the insurance company. This could potentially save you $315 if a full replacement is needed.
