Congratulations to all athletes for their hard work which has resulted in being selected to represent NPSS throughout Simcoe County. Parents/Guardians and students are asked to review all forms sent home and return them to the team coach as soon as possible.
Student Accident Insurance
Student injuries at school, during school events, and extra-curricular activities (athletics, clubs, and out-of-province/out-of-country field trips) are not covered by the board or its insurance company. While every precaution is taken to provide a safe learning environment, accidents can and do happen.
Due to recent injuries in Ontario during school extra-curricular activities and field trips, and the resulting financial cost, a risk exposure to school boards and families has been highlighted. It is essential that all those participating in out of regular school extra-curricular activities have adequate insurance coverage for all instances of injury.
The Simcoe County District School Board has selected Reliable Life Insurance Company as an option for students/parents/guardians to consider with regards to purchasing student accident insurance coverage for the upcoming school year. The coverage is for 24 hours a day. Reliable Life offers a variety of plans and benefits at reasonable annual prices. Coverage can be purchased online at www.insuremykids.com .
Please watch for your student accident insurance package along with a letter about requirements for extra-curricular activities* and out-of-province or out-of-country field trips.
NOTE: All students participating in extracurricular activities (sports & teams) MUST sign up for the student accident insurance OR sign the waiver form stating they do not require coverage through the school.
