Accidents and Injuries

Should your child be injured at school the following procedures will be followed:

  • A staff member will take action to ensure the safety of the student and administer minor first aid.
  • The parent or guardian will be telephoned and apprised of the situation and asked, if necessary, to come to the school to advise us of their wishes regarding their child’s injury.
  • If we are unable to contact the parent or guardian, the administrator in charge will decide if emergency treatment is necessary.
  • If immediate emergency treatment appears to be necessary, the child will be transported via ambulance to Alberta Children’s Hospital and the parents or guardian will be advised as soon as possible.

Illness at School

Students who are ill should ask the teacher’s permission to report to the office. In the office, parents will be contacted regarding permission to go home. School personnel are not permitted to supply students with any type of medication. Parents will be asked to come and get their child if the student cannot continue their schooling. 

Medical Emergencies

If a student is injured, staff trained in first aid will respond. Parents will be notified as soon as possible. Please note that the school will always err on the side of caution and call 911 to have an ambulance respond should that be deemed appropriate in the circumstance.
