The Con Amore School and the Duchesne County Pre-School, are housed in a beautiful building for students in Duchesne County with severe multiple disabilities and students with developmental delays.
Con Amore School was established in 1970. A new building was erected in 1977 part of which is the current building. A new addition including the gymnasium was built in 2007. The facility includes a spa, playground, OT, PT therapy room, multi-sensory therapy room, 14 classrooms, a cafeteria and gymnasium. The pre-school serves 3, 4, and 5 year-old students. The school age program serves children ages 5 to 22. All of our school age students have severe multiple disabilities. These disabilities include autism, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, communication impairments, rare genetic disorders and syndromes, students who are both deaf and blind, and those who are extremely medically fragile. Our preschool students have one or more developmental delays in the following areas: cognitive, fine motor, gross motor, and speech and hearing. Many of our students are on medications. In addition, some of our students have aggressive and disruptive behaviors and communicate through these behaviors.
The mission of Con Amore School is to provide students with disabilities with an appropriate individualized educational program. Our vision is that All students will reach their greatest potential. Therefore, each classroom is staffed with a certified special education teacher as well as instructional assistants. Our students receive related services: speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and adapted physical education. The students also benefit from the expertise of the district augmentative communication team and deaf-blind services from The Utah School for the Deaf and Blind. Our school programs include sensory experiences, spa therapy, music, vocational training, home living skills and recess.
Con Amore is an Italian word meaning “With Love.” The name is very fitting for a population of students who have unconditional love for those around them. The goal of every staff member is to improve the quality of life for our students and their families. Although our successes are measured in small steps, they are monumental achievements and cause for celebration.
Welcome! Visit and experience the joy our staff and students feel each day.
Student Accident and Sickness Insurance
The safety of our students is of critical importance to all of us and we want to protect them from injury. Even so, accidents do happen (at school and elsewhere) and required medical care can be expensive. Please know that your school ***does not ***assume responsibility for such costs but does offer you access to several student accident insurance plans for voluntary purchase. Details can be found at this site: https://www.myers-stevens.com/enrollment-page/
Options are available to cover your child 24/7, anywhere in the world or you can limit coverage to school-related injuries only. The plansdo notrestrict your choice of doctors or hospitals. However, you’ll also have access to an extensive network of providers with discounted fees. Seeking care through contracted providers may further reduce your out-of-pocket costs, particularly if your child needs surgery or hospitalization.
Also offered is the pay-as-you-go*** Student Accident & SicknessPlan**whichcovers sicknessas well as injury, in and out of school. TheDental Accident*plan can be of particular value with younger students as final treatment to injured teeth often needs to be deferred until after they mature.
Common emergency benefits– Regardless of the benefit level selected, all of the accident medical plans and theStudent Accident &Sickness Planwill cover eligible charges forAmbulance, Emergency Room and Emergency Room Physicianat 100% of Usual, Customary and Reasonable charges (UCR) up to plan limits.
Enhanced benefits for qualified concussions– If an insured student suffers a concussion while participating in any covered activity and is consequently removed from play from his/her interscholastic sport per the school’s formal concussion protocols, then any deductible or inside limit features of the plan are waived and eligible charges for the evaluation and treatment of the concussion are paid at 100% of UCR subject to remaining policy terms and conditions.
Interscholastic Sports– Please know that all plans offered (other than the Dental Accident Plan) may be used to comply with applicable state and local insurance requirements for participation in interscholastic sports (coverage for tackle football is offered on a stand-alone basis).
COVID-19– After schools were physically closed in March of 2020, the administrator of this program - Myers-Stevens & Toohey (MST) worked with the underwriting insurance company to make several adjustments to the insurance program. In brief, they included: 1) qualified extension of coverage to distance learning at home; 2) qualified coverage for COVID-19 testing costs; 3) the addition of Telemedicine as a covered service; 4) qualified extension of coverage for school activities pushed beyond the last day of instruction; 5) related extension of coverage to graduated students participating in such postponed activities and 6) modified claims forms and procedures. Details can be found on the MSTwebsite**www.myers-stevens.com. At this time, these adjustments continue to apply to the 2021-2022 School Year insurance program. .As matters concerning COVID continue to evolve, updates will be posted on the MST website
You are strongly encouraged to carefully review the information provided. If your child already has health coverage, the student insurance plans offered can also be used to expand choice of providers and help cover the high deductibles and 30% to 40% cost sharing obligations imposed by many health plans today.
To enroll, please follow the instructions at this site (https://www.myers-stevens.com/enrollment-page/). Enrollment is also available by going towww.myers-stevens.com.
