As an option for our BCSS families, our school district is making a student accident insurance plan available for students at a low cost. The school district does not provide any type of health or accident insurance for injuries incurred by your child at school. We're offering this program because of trends in rising family health and dental insurance costs, increased deductibles, co-payments, or lack of health or dental insurance coverage.
To keep children in schools healthy, Georgia requires vaccines against certain diseases. Please see these reminders for required student immunizations.
From Strep Throat to COVID-19, check these symptoms and information before heading to school.
