Musical instruments & insurance
Every year children bring many
personally-owned or rented instruments into our schools,
sometimes leaving them overnight in our classrooms. The North
Colonie Central School District has taken reasonable steps to
prevent the theft of student property. However, the district is
not responsible for theft, loss or damage to students’ personal
property on the premises. Additionally, parents are encouraged
to list valuable items like musical instruments on their
homeowners’ or renters’ insurance policy.
