Excess Student Accident Insurance Coverage

STMA school district does not provide medical coverage for school related injuries due to an accident or for out of pocket expenses from family health insurance coverage. This accident insurance coverage is provided through Sentry Insurance Company as an option for parents/guardians to purchase.

Parents can sign their children up for excess student accident insurance coverage for covered injuries related to school accidents. Several options are available including school time accident coverage, 24 hour coverage, football coverage and dental coverage. The cost of the premium paid by parents/guardians is based upon the coverage and benefit level.
