Student Accident Insurance
 Creating a caring and safe environment for our
students is our top priority. Unfortunately, despite all
reasonable precautions being taken, accidents can
still happen. Some injuries may result in
medical, dental or other expenses that are
not covered by provincial health care
or employer group plans. As a parent/guardian,
you become responsible for these expenses.
 Student accident insurance is available for
purchase, on a voluntary basis, through Reliable
Life Insurance
Company. Forms can
either be picked up from the school office
or downloaded at
or you may apply online at

Upcoming Speaker Series
The OCDSB Speaker Series offers free
presentations to the community and seeks
to provide parents and educators with
access to leading ideas in education that will
allow us to work collaboratively to better
support student learning.
