“Voluntary” at school and 24-hr. Student Accident Insurance for the 2017-18 School Year
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 coverage period (flyer with instructions on the reverse side). To help defray medical expenses (deductibles, co-payments etc.) resulting from these accidental injuries, we offer low-cost optional student accident insurance. The basic plan is a low ONE TIME payment of $9.00 for the entire school year. This policy can provide valuable insurance coverage for parents that either do not have insurance, or wish to supplement an existing insurance plan.
This policy is secondary coverage for students who are already covered by a family policy, but should be primary coverage for students who have no other insurance coverage. Students 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 is a ONE-TIME payment of $69.00 for the entire year and protects students 24 hours per day, including time spent in school or away and even on the weekends. 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, 2018, regardless of the date of enrollment.
