Important Information Regarding School Safety – September 30

Prior to the start of the elementary school day on Friday, September 30, a First Student bus driver shared that a Rossmoyne Elementary student was in possession of bullets on the school bus. Fortunately, the student did not make any threats or have any other items beside the magazine clip of bullets. Dr. Stoltz felt it was important to make our entire school community aware of the incident and to use it as an opportunity to ask for our school communities continued partnership in keeping our schools and buses safe.

Student Accident Insurance Information

The District does not carry medical insurance on students; however, it does provide parents with the opportunity to select a primary excess group insurance plan for their child. Since many group insurance policies no longer pay full hospital and medical expenses and many require a deductible or co-insurance, student accident insurance can help eliminate the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses.  There are two plans available for your consideration. Please click here for more details and information on enrollment.
