Our School District does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school property or during school activities including extracurricular sports.
Each year, many families spend thousands of dollars when their children are injured at school, while participating in non-school activities, or at home. If a student is injured, parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for any costs not covered by their Government Health Insurance Plan or their employer’s health care plan. Please check with your provider regarding your coverage.
Most accident-related expenses are not fully covered under GHIP and some expenses like ambulance fees, casts, crutches, physiotherapy and emergency dental care are usually not covered at all. This leaves you, the parent/guardian, financially responsible.
To help protect your family, it is recommended that you consider obtaining student accident insurance. As a convenience to you, the District has made an arrangement to offer student accident insurance through insuremykids®. Participation is voluntary but highly recommended and the costs are to be paid by the parent/guardian. The program is available for students up to age 26.
If you wish to purchase coverage, please do so directly online at www.insuremykids.com or call 1-800-463-5437. The insurance agreement is between You and the insurance underwriter, Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. For more information, please visit www.insuremykids.com.
