Grand Erie District School Board does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school property or during school activities, including extracurricular sports.
If a student is injured, parent(s)/caregiver(s) are responsible for any costs not covered by their Government Health Insurance Plan or their employer’s health care plan. The Board encourages all parents/caregivers to review this or other available Student Accident Insurance plans, especially those with a child(ren) participating in medium- to high-impact physical activities (both during school and outside of school hours).
For higher-risk field trips or excursions, students will be required to confirm that they have insurance or will purchase student accident insurance in advance of the trip/excursion. Schools will notify parents/caregivers when accident insurance is mandatory.
The insuremykids® student accident insurance program offers three plans with a variety of benefits and affordable rates. Their most affordable plan is available for as little as $17 per year. All plans provide 24/ 7 coverage.

Grand Erie District School Board requires that all parents/caregivers declare whether or not they have accident insurance. A declaration form is attached for parent/caregiver review and signature. Please return a completed Declaration Accident Insurance Form to your student's school.
