Student Accident Insurance:
Red Wing Public Schools is not responsible for any accidental injuries that occur to students while under the school’s supervision or participating in interscholastic sports. Our School District has partnered with Student Assurance Services to give families the opportunity to purchase optional accident insurance for their student(s). When enrolled, this coverage provides financial assistance with your out-of-pocket medical expenses should your student sustain an accidental bodily injury.

Reasons to consider coverage for your student:

  • Your primary health insurance has a high deductible – copay – coinsurance.
  • No other insurance on your student.
  • Your student participates in a sport where unexpected injuries commonly occur.
To learn more or to enroll your student, please visit www.sas-mn.com. ;If you have any questions regarding this voluntary student accident insurance program, please contact Student Assurance Services at (800) 328-2739.  You will speak with a live person who can assist you with your questions.

About Our School

Sunnyside Elementary School first opened its doors in 1956, and a second wing was added in 1966. An addition and extensive remodeling completed in 1989, as well as additional remodeling completed in 2018, provide the building with very modern facilities while maintaining its sense of history.  Students in kindergarten and first grade attend Sunnyside, and the building houses a couple preschool sections as well.

Sunnyside School also offers before and after school child care through the Kids Junction program. Please click HERE for more information about Kids Junction.
