The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school premises or during school activities. Accidents can and do happen. Some injuries incur medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans.
As a parent or guardian you are responsible for these expenses.
Under the Education Act, the Board is empowered to make available an Accident and Life Insurance Program for students. Participation in such a program is voluntary and the costs are to be paid by the parent or guardian.
For your convenience, the Board has arranged for a Student Accident Insurance Policy exclusively through the Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. The ”insuremykids Protection Plan” provides peace of mind, and is an inexpensive and comprehensive way to protect families from financial hardships they may face as a result of an accident. All plans, with various options offered to better suit you and your family’s needs, provide coverage for accidents 24 hours per day every day during the full policy term. Because of the number of claims which have occurred during non-school activities and summer holidays, parents may want to give special consideration to subscribing to a plan. The Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada recommends the Platinum Plan as it offers the best value in accident insurance coverage for your child (Family Rates Available). University/College and mature students must apply individually for specified plans indicated and not part of a family plan.
The insurance agreement is between you and the Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. If you wish to subscribe, please complete the application portion of the “insuremykids Protection Plan” brochure that has been sent home with your child or you can apply directly on-line at www.insuremykids.com. Any questions should be directed to the Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada toll free at:
If the enrolment form for the Student Accident Insurance Plan has not been received, or it has been misplaced, please contact your school office.
