Injuries at School - Parent Financial Responsibility

Injuries at School - Parent Financial Responsibility

 

The health and safety of our students is one of the district’s foremost concerns.  Even so, accidents may and do happen and the resulting medical bills (ambulance transport, surgery, etc.) can be very expensive.  However, many families are unaware that the district does not carry insurance for student personal injury costs and cannot assume responsibility for them.  Parent/Guardian Responsibility:  What this basically means is that if your child gets hurt during school or a school activity, you as the parent or guardian, are financially responsible for any medical bills.  This includes students participating in athletics, PE, recess and after school activities.  If your student participates in a sport, please make certain your family insurance plan covers athletic participation.

 

Brochures for optional student insurance are available in the main office and counseling office at BHS.
