STUDENT ACCIDENT INSURANCE
Parents with a child or children attending school in our School District have the opportunity to select a primary group insurance plan for their students. Student accident insurance can help you manage the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses, since many group insurance policies no longer pay full hospital and medical expenses and may require a deductible or co-insurance. Further information about student accident insurance can be found here: Student Accident Voluntary Insurance Brochure
