Augusta County School Board provides all parents with the opportunity to purchase a low-cost accident insurance program for their child (ren). Parents/guardians may choose to participate and pay the premium.
By declining or failing to respond to this offer of student accident insurance, parents/guardians accept full responsibility, either through a personal health insurance policy or direct payment of expenses, for the cost of any accidental injury to the student while at school or school-related activities. Augusta County Schools does not carry medical or accident insurance on students.
NOTE: The school board strongly encourages that all children participating in athletics, including athletes, student trainers, managers and cheerleaders, be protected by personal health insurance or a student accident insurance policy. The VHSL Participation form must be signed by the parent/guardian and submitted to the coach prior to team tryouts.
