While it is recommended that all pupils be protected by accident coverage, it is a school requirement that a pupil must have purchased this protection, be covered by equivalent insurance, or sign a waiver before the pupil may participate in any extracurricular activity.
The Central Dauphin School District Board has approved the following policy regarding school insurance and participation in extracurricular activities. "All pupils, in order to participate in any of the extracurricular activities of the school program, must be covered by pupil insurance or parents must certify to equivalent coverage under private insurance policies, or sign a waiver." A form will be provided upon request to certify this coverage.
Coverage includes the regular school sessions, going to and from school and all school-sponsored and school-supervised activities except interscholastic football on the senior high school level. There is no reduction of premium for coverage during part of the year.
The Central Dauphin School District will not be responsible for medical or dental expenses incurred by pupils participating in extracurricular activities, including athletics, that are in excess of the coverage provided by the required school insurance.In the event of an accident, the pupil is responsible to notify the teacher in charge, so that an accident form may be completed and submitted to the school nurse. Failure to do so may result in loss of benefits.For Accident Insurance Information click HERE.
