Student accident and sickness insurance 

Despite best efforts, children sometimes get injured. Even if your child has health insurance, certain costs may not be covered. Parents should review ASD's Student Accident & Sickness Coverage and consider if adding additional insurance is needed or wanted. 

If you have any questions, contact ASD's Risk Management & Insurance Department.
