Insurance Protection for Students

Tue, 07/20/2021 - 8:58am

The school system does not carry medical insurance for accidents that occur at school, including non-sport related injuries, such as trips and falls, physical education injuries, and recess/playground injuries. Thus, parents are encouraged to enroll students in the voluntary student accident insurance program. All students are eligible and information is available on their school website, under the “services” tab. Online enrollment is available at

Parents should also consider enrolling students although they are already insured through an outside company. The student accident insurance may help to pay for denied claims through your private insurance policies, or help to pay for rising insurance copayments and hospital costs. The student insurance plans can start as low as $26 per student, depending on your preferences.

The regular student accident insurance does not provide coverage for football. A separate accident insurance policy for high school football is available, or parents may arrange for appropriate insurance for students participating in interscholastic football.
