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)/guardian(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/guardians 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/guardians 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.
For more information or to purchase insurance, please visit www.insuremykids.com or call 1-800-463-5437. The Student Accident Insurance Program is available for purchase beginning August 1 and expires September 30 no matter when it is purchased. For example: if someone purchases a new plan on October 2, 2020, it still expires September 30, 2021.
Grand Erie District School Board requires that all parents declare whether or not they have accident insurance. A declaration form is attached for parent/guardian review and signature. Please return a completed form (linked below) to your student's school:
