The Importance of Student Accident Insurance - School Year 2016-17
 
At Bluewater District School Board, the safety of our students is of utmost importance.  Our policies and procedures are developed to minimize risk to students.

The Board's Strategic Plan includes the following Mission statement:

"We are a learning organization committed to providing a quality educational experience for every student in a safe and caring environment."

However, accidents can and do happen, which can result in injuries involving dental, medical, and other expenses not covered under the provincial health care plan.

Bluewater District School Board does not provide accident insurance for students, but does make available a Student Accident Insurance Plan through Old Republic Canada.

Please watch for the enrolment package for Student Accident Insurance which will be sent home with students during the first week of school.

The Old Republic Canada Insurance accident coverage is made available to parents, at low cost, to provide benefits for dental injuries and other accidents which may occur through participating in sports and other activities.

Partial coverage that will cover for accidents that occur on school premises during school hours is available through the purchase of the Limited Plan at $8.00/year. This plan is only available by mailing in the application form sent home with your child.

All other plans offering 24/7 coverage for as little as $13.50/year are available online at www.insuremykids.com.

Dental injuries account for approximately 75% of all claims and many dental plans cover only 50% of the cost of repairs for accidental damage to teeth.

By participating in this important insurance, parents can ensure that the high cost of dental repairs following an accident will be covered.

All students participating in extra-curricular sports are encouraged to carry this insurance.
