North Okanagan-Shuswap School District No. 83 does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school premises or during off-site 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 become responsible for these expenses.
To help protect our students, the District suggests that parents/guardians check with your local insurance provider or online on-line for other options.
One available insurer is the insuremykids® Protection Plan through Reliable Life Insurance Company. Participation in this program is voluntary and the parent or guardian pays the costs.
This program offers a variety of plans and benefits at affordable rates. Benefits included are:
• dental expenses (resulting from an accident)
• total and permanent disability
• paralysis/loss of use
• special disability benefits
• death benefits.
If your child participates in co-curricular activities or activities outside the school day, there is a plan tailored to these needs.~ All rates are one-time annual premiums.~ Family rates for 3 or more children are also offered.
