Health & Accident Insurance

Portland Public Schools does not carry accident insurance for students. The district is not responsible for medical bills of students injured at school. The safety of our students is one of our most important concerns. Even so, accidents do happen and resulting medical treatment can be very expensive. Use the following link to learn more about health coverage available through Oregon

Healthy children learn better; and a better education makes for a brighter future.  Any school nurse or community partner can refer an uninsured student to the Outreach Office at MESD by using the online form.  A student may also be referred by printing and faxing this form to 503-257-1768.
