An all-pupil insurance program may be offered to the parents of students in the district. The board of directors strongly recommends that a student participating in interscholastic athletics be adequately insured. If a parent wishes their child to participate without insurance, the parent must submit a written statement accepting full responsibility for all accidents and related costs for injuries.
The purchase of pupil insurance shall be voluntary with the cost being paid by the student or parent(s)/guardian(s). Participation in the insurance health and accident plan is not a contract with the school district, but rather, a contract between the insurance company and the student.
