Student Insurance Letter

2023-2024 School Year

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co., Inc. insurance company brochures are made available in the Walla Walla Public Schools as a service to students and their families who may be interested in purchasing student accident insurance for this school year. The McDonald Zaring Insurance Agency is the local administrator of the Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co., Inc. program; Walla Walla School District is not an agent for this insurance company or for the insured students.

Any student participating in competitive athletics is required by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association to have adequate insurance. Parents who have private insurance for their students which meets the WIAA requirements for sports are not required to purchase the school accident insurance. A form releasing the school from any obligation must be signed by the parent and returned to the principal's office. These forms will be available in any school office.

Insurance is available for school time only, 24-hour coverage, dental, accident & sickness, life, pharmacy, and tackle football. Three plans, High, Mid, and Low, are offered by Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co., Inc., with premium costs and benefits for each outlined in the brochure. All athletics are covered in the basic policy, except tackle football. Tackle football for grades 9 - 12 requires a premium in addition to the basic individual premium.

Please note on the brochure the specific information concerning conditions that are not covered and the provisions for payment of benefits which would involve other insurance coverage.

Coverage begins when the school receives confirmation of coverage. Parents are encouraged to provide some type of accident insurance for their children.

IMPORTANT – Coverage is currently being offered for the 2022-2023 school year and these plans will terminate at 11:59 pm on July 31, 2023. Coverage for the 2023-2024 school year can be offered as early as August 1, 2023. Please call Myers-Stevens & Toohey at (800) 827-4695 to discuss enrollment options that work best for your needs.
