The Peel District School Board does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school property or during school activities including extracurricular sports. Each year, many of our families spend thousands of dollars when their children are injured at school, on field trips, while participating in non-school activities, or at home. If a student is injured, parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for any costs not covered by provincial health care or their employer's health care plan. Please check with your provider regarding your coverage.
The provincial health care system does not cover costs which are commonly related to accidents including dental work, ambulance fees, casts, crutches, and physiotherapy. All of these costs are covered by student accident insurance. To help protect your family, it is recommended that you consider obtaining student accident insurance. As a convenience to parents, the Board has made an arrangement to offer a plan to parents through Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. Insuremykids® Student Accident Insurance offers three plans with a variety of benefits at affordable prices – their most affordable plan is available for as little as $13.00 per year for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The enclosed application form provides details regarding plan options and rates. Family rates for three or more children are available even if they attend different schools. Additional savings are available for 3 Year and 5 Year Plans if purchased on-line prior to October 1, 2017.
The insurance agreement is between You and Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. Please mail the application directly to them with your payment (no cash) using the self-addressed stamped application form.
