South Middle School
"Home of the Rebels!"
Enrollment:  701

Principal, Larry Stevens
Assistant Principal, Jeanne Deming


     The goal of South Middle School is to provide a program of academic excellence for every child. Each child is unique and special; at the same time all middle school children have certain characteristics in common. Excellence is achieved in our school because facilities, curriculum, programs, and relationships are built upon the common needs of our children. They are at the heart of every decision, every program, and every day.

Dear Parents:

The school district does not provide any type of health or accident insurance for injuries incurred by your child at school.  As a service to students and their families, our school is making available a student accident insurance plan for your child at a very nominal cost.  The district offers this program because of trends in rising family health and dental insurance costs, increased deductible, co-payments, or lack of health or dental insurance coverage.



1.        Deductible and co-pays in your health plan.  Many health plans have increased the amount of out-of-pocket expenses.

2.        No insurance.


This plan will provide benefits for medical expenses incurred because of an accident.  If you have other insurance, benefits can be applied to your deductible or co-pays.  If you have no other insurance this will become your primary accident plan.


PURCHASE COVERAGE (with Visa or MasterCard) at and then follow directions at ‘Find Your School.”


PRINT BROCHURE PDF FROM SCHOOL DISTRICT PAGE at and pay with check or money order.


All questions regarding this coverage should be directed to First Agency, Inc. at (269) 381-6630, or toll free at (800) 243-6298.


Thank you. 

David B. Janak
