Insurance for Injuries

Frederick County Public Schools does not carry insurance for injuries to students. Parents are encouraged to purchase insurance from a private vendor or the student insurance that is made available through each school office. Qualified families may enroll in the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) Plan. Parents may contact the office of the director of student support services or the school nurse for additional information.

Student accident insurance is made available to parents for purchase. Typically, there are several coverage options available for purchase including school-time, 24-hour and football/sports coverage. Information on student accident insurance is available in the front office of each school and on your child’s school web page under “Health Services.”
