Reminder for parents/guardians: Accidents happen – be prepared with Student Accident Insurance

Posted September 11, 2017

Parents/guardians are responsible for expenses related to student injuries on school premises during school activities.  Accidents can and do happen and the costs involved might not be fully covered by Provincial Health Care or employer group insurance plans.

The Upper Grand District School Board is empowered under The Education Act to offer Accident and Life Insurance for students.

Information will be sent home with respect to Student Accident Insurance offered by Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada.  You should receive:

  1. The Director’s letter and an Acknowledgment to be signed by parents/guardians and returned to school. Attached to the Director’s letter is a translation sheet for your reference.
  2. An InsureMyKids application form

Old Republic offers a variety of options, including family rates and multi-year plans, at affordable prices.  The cost must be paid by parents/guardians.

Subscription is directly through Old Republic by mail or online.  Questions should be directed to Old Republic at 1-800-463-5437 or

For today’s active children, especially those who participate in field trips, co-curricular and other school activities outside the school day, Student Accident Insurance is valuable.
