Student Accident Insurance Letter

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PARENTS & GUARDIANS

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Every September, school boards in Ontario remind parents and guardians of the importance of acquiring Student Accident Insurance. Some injuries may incur medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans. For this reason, the Waterloo Region District School Board encourages you to consider insuremykids® Student Accident Insurance, underwritten by Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. Participation in such a program is voluntary and the costs are paid by the parent or guardian. Insuremykids® Student Accident Insurance offers a variety of plans and benefits at affordable rates. Benefits can include:

  • accidental dental expenses
  • total and permanent disability
  • loss of limb/loss of use
  • out of province emergency medical
  • accidental death benefits

If your child participates in extracurricular activities or activities outside of school, we strongly recommend that this or similar coverage be purchased. All rates for insuremykids® Student Accident insurance are one-time annual premiums and may be as low as $13.00 per child (family rates apply for 3 or more children). Purchasing online before September 30th, 2018 enables you the opportunity to save even more on premium with a 3 year or 5 year policy.

You can purchase a plan 24/7 directly online at www.insuremykids.com
