Manage all of your "emergencies" by providing a single point of contact for your boarding/day school. Or, offer support for a "select group" during the academic year.
Schools have been left responsible to manage the additional liability of caring for students off-campus when their Emergency Contacts cannot. Especially during a health crisis!
These are the common trends we've seen this past academic year:
SHA can be a service that is recommended or available to families without any direct affiliation with the School. Or, it can be a service that the School offers directly... whatever suits the type of messaging and relationship you would like us to have with your families.

SHA acts as the primary resource for the school when emergency contact protocol is required. If a student does not have a local friend or relative to provide "family-level" care, the school can contact SHA to provide whatever care may be needed in the event of an emergency, or requirement for that student to be off campus for any reason. We establish a contract directly with each student's family before any care is provided, and we work very closely with the family going forward until the student can either return to school, or travel home safely.
When a student needs to be off campus, or quarantined, the following services are activated:
GAP coverage is significantly less per-student than "Individual Enrollment" ($2500+)
Typical plans range from $500-1000 per student per year, based on total # students enrolled, and the length of coverage period.
A quick conversation is usually best to determine pricing based on your school's unique situation. However, we're happy to send you a quote if you can provide us with some basic information about your school.
Or you can Schedule A Virtual Meeting
*Quotes are usually sent within 1-2 hours
We only require a basic "financial-level" agreement to complete payment and lay out terms of the coverage being provided. There is no formal vendor contract, since all service are provided directly to the student via a "guardianship agreement" established with the family.
"Group Assurance Plan" cost is significantly less per-student than "Individual Enrollment" (~$2500) or enrolling during an emergency situation ($3000+). Average GAP costs per-student range from ~$500-1000 per year (with at least 10 students covered). All services listed above are billed separately, and only as needed. You may choose to have any or all of these services billed directly to the school, or to the families of each student who utilizes them as part of the school's GAP program.
In order to provide any of the above services to covered students, each parent will be required to complete the Membership Packet, which allows SHA and its partners to provide the above listed services and administer any direct care (as required) for the student's health and wellbeing.
*This information is only required after the school notifies SHA that the student will need to enter into our care and be moved off campus. There is no pre-enrollment paperwork, or any student information required as part of the GAP program.
