• Voluntary Student Accident Insurance Program

      Each year the District provides parents with an economical option to purchase a student accident insurance
      policy to cover student accidents either at school or for a 24-hour/7 days/week coverage period (flyer with
      instructions on reverse side). To help minimize the parent’s exposure to out-of-pocket medical expenses
      (deductibles, co-payments etc.) from student accidental injuries both at school and even away from school,
      the District has competitively solicited a very affordable low-cost optional student accident insurance for
      parents to purchase. The basic plan is a low ONE-TIME, per child, per school year payment of ONLY
      $10.00 for the entire school year or $14.00 for the “enhanced plan”. This policy can provide valuable
      insurance coverage for parents that either do not have insurance or wish to supplement an existing medical
      insurance plan.

      This policy is secondary coverage for students who are already covered by a family policy but shall be
      primary coverage for the students who have no other insurance coverage. Parents purchasing the “at school”
      policy are covered while at school or while attending any curricular, co-curricular or other school function as
      a participant under school sponsorship and supervision; and while being transported by approved district
      transportation. The “24-hour” policy protects students 24 hours per day including the time spent in
      school or away and even on the weekends and the basic plan only cost $55.00 for the entire year, or
      $78.00 for the “enhanced plan”. The District recommends the purchase of this optional insurance at the
      beginning of each school year or when a new student enrolls during the year since the coverage ends July 31,
      2024 regardless of the date of enrollment.

      Additional Optional 24-hour Dental coverage plan ($5) and an In-Hospital Sickness coverage plan ($40)
      are also available for parents to purchase for a very affordable annual premium as shown.
