It is mandatory to obtain the Health Special Risk, Inc. (HSR) Student Accident Insurance issued through the district. No child may participate in or attend the before and after school care program and select community education classes without this insurance.  This is a supplemental insurance plan, and it is required even if you already have family or individual medical insurance coverage. This supplemental insurance plan DOES NOT take the place of family or individual medical insurance coverage.  It is your responsibility to become familiar with any insurance limitations and other information provided through this insurance.
