Accident Insurance
Student accident insurance is included in your tuition and covers students during school activities. This coverage is secondary to your personal coverage, and it is your responsibility as parents to make sure the school office is aware of any injury to your child which occurs during a school-sponsored activity and requires the services of a doctor or health care facility.
