Accident Insurance

Your child’s school does NOT prove medical insurance coverage for school accidents. The parent or guardian is financially responsible for their child’s medical bills if the child gets hurt during school activities. Government code prohibits school districts from buying student insurance as it could be construed as a gift of public funds.

In view of this fact, we urge each parent to check their own insurance to see if coverage is provided for their child. If your child is not covered, we recommend that you consider the inexpensive insurance offered through a private provider. Brochures and other material will be sent home with your child the first day of school. RULES
