Accidents & Injuries

In the event of an accident, several courses of action may be taken depending upon the seriousness of the incident.

  • Scrapes and scratches, or any injury that can be treated with ice and cleaning with soap and water and a band-aid will be dealt with at the school.
  • In the case of sprains, severe cuts, or contusions, home will be notified immediately to decide what actions should be taken.

Allergies

We are committed to providing a safe environment that is inclusive for all children. A number of our students have a potentially life-threatening allergy to peanut and tree nuts. Parents of children with allergies must fill out appropriate forms (also available in the office) and ensure the school has the necessary medication on-hand should a reaction occur. We ask that parents who are sending in classroom treats, please avoid the noted products. Staff is trained annually in the administration of an Epipen. 

Head Lice 

Head lice is an ongoing problem in schools today. Here are some tips for parents regarding the prevention and treatment of head lice:

How do I control lice at home?

  • Bedding, towels, clothing, hats, toys, etc. should be washed in hot water and dried in a hot dry cycle; dry cleaned; or sealed in plastic bags for two weeks. Do not use insect sprays because they can be harmful.
  • Soak combs, hairbrushes and hair ornaments in hot water for 1 hour.
  • Vacuum carpets, furniture and mattresses where the person with lice lies or sits.
  • Never use insect sprays to control lice. They are unnecessary and harmful to people and pets.

How do I limit the spread of head lice?

Parents and schools both play a role in limiting head lice in schools, community groups, and families.

What role do parents and guardians play?

  • Examine your child’s scalp every week.
  • Encourage children not to share combs, barrettes, hats, scarves, headphones, or headgear.
  • Treat your child as quickly as possible.
  • Take the time to remove the nits after treatment.
  • Tell all possible contacts so other cases can be found and treated, (e.g. teachers, parents of classmates, and playmates)
  • Once treated, a child with head lice can go back to school.

What role do schools play?

  • Give information to parents about finding and treating head lice.
  • Treatment information, prevention, consultation and control are available from public health nurses in schools.
  • School boards work closely with Alberta Health Services – Calgary to find ways of limiting the spread of head lice.

Parents are encouraged to call their school nurse, community health centre, or their family doctor for more information about preventing, recognizing, and treating head lice in their family.

Call Health Link Alberta at 403-943-LINK in Calgary area or 1-866-408-LINK toll free for more information if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have children less than 24 months, or are allergic to ragweed or chrysanthemums.
