 STUDENT ACCIDENT INSURANCE

Parents or 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 has been sent home with respect to Student Accident Insurance offered by the Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada (“Old Republic”).  You should receive the Director’s letter, an Acknowledgment to be signed by parents (and returned to school) and a Student Accident Insurance Application form (to be mailed directly to Old Republic).  Old Republic offers a variety of options, including family rates and multi-year plans, at affordable prices.  The cost must be paid by parents or guardian.

Subscription is directly through Old Republic by mail or on line.  Questions should be directed to Old Republic at 1-800-463-5437 or www.insuremykids.com

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.

Office staff and custodial staff have been busy preparing the school for opening on September 8, 2015.  The school looks fantastic and all is ready to go for our start up. 

 

School start up will proceed as usual as OSSTF teachers have suspended sanctions pending ratification of their tentative agreement. 

 

Link Crew training will proceed as usual on Thursday August 27, 2015 and Friday August 28, 2015 in the gymnasium.  

 

Grade 9 orientation and registration will be held on September 1, 2015 in the gymnasium.  Parents and guardians are asked to drop their children off at the school on that date, at 8:45 am.  The event should conclude by 1:00 pm.  

 

Grade 10 -12 registration will occur on September 2, 2015 from 11:00 am. to 6:00 pm.

  

Please note that student fees can be paid online this year. In addition, we have chosen to have our photographers take student photos on September 14, 2015 rather than during the registration periods.

Additional registration information will be posted by Wednesday of this week.

For safety and efficiency reasons, we want to reduce the amount of cash and cheques coming into our school.  School related expenses such as field trips, spirit wear, team fees, yearbooks, etc. will be available for online purchase.  More information will be attached to this year's report card.
