Student Safety

Injuries and accidents are everyday occurrences. The home, playground, school and community all present possible hazards to children and adolescents. Injuries are often predictable and preventable events.

The Manitoba School Boards Association and its education partners have developed a number of printed and on-line resources to ensure that youth continue to be afforded vital educational opportunities, while supporting safety as a high priority.

In addition, the association recommends all parents/guardians consider purchasing student accident insurance, which provides 24 hour coverage for all accidents at school, home or play. The Student Accident Insurance Program provides coverage for medical, dental, disability or accidental death and dismemberment insurance on behalf of students.
