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 www.binks.ca
