STUDENT INSURANCE PROGRAM

 

 

Low-rate group accident insurance may be made available to all students.  Parents will be informed of this insurance annually and urged to purchase it for their children.

 

The Pointe Coupee Parish School Board shall not assume liability for accidents to students.  The following policy was adopted by the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board on July 15, 1970:

 

  1. In order for a student to participate in athletics, he/she must subscribe to the student insurance plan or his/her parent must sign a statement indicating that he/she is properly covered by other insurance.
     

  2. Parents shall be informed that neither the School Board nor the school is liable for any athletic injuries.
     

  3. Parents of students holding student insurance shall be responsible for processing all student insurance claims; that is, parents should collect or assemble all claims and bills necessary to be sent to the insurance company for processing.
     

  4. Parents shall be informed that no insurance policy covers all medical and hospitalization bills.
