Please contact the office if your child will be absent or late. For more information about our policies, see our Attendance page.

Accidents

  • Should your child be involved in an accident, staff will assess the situation.
  • Minor injuries will be treated appropriately.
  • In the case of more serious injuries, parents will be notified immediately.
  • If necessary, staff call 911 to seek qualified medical assistance. Children may be transported to the hospital by ambulance.
  • Should this necessary, parents must assume the cost of this service (this is not covered by Alberta Health Care).
  • CBE staff are not permitted to transport sick or injured children to the hospital.

Allergy Awareness

At Rosscarrock School, we encourage healthy eating habits. Food that is provided to all children within a classroom must be prepared in a commercial kitchen.

Schools continue to revisit policies that help protect anaphylactic children. Allergic shock can be sudden and even deadly for those affected. Often schools attempt to eliminate allergens from the environment; however this can create a false sense of security, as it is almost impossible to guarantee an allergen-free school. At Rosscarrock School, we will work together with families to create a safe environment. We recognize the need to balance the right and convenience of all students to eat what they like and the allergic child’s right to be safe at school. We hope that by becoming an “allergy aware” school we will continue to promote greater awareness of anaphylactic issues.

Medical Alerts

Please inform the school in writing of any special health concerns regarding your child. (e.g. allergic reactions, epilepsy, asthma, precautions due to medical conditions) 

  • This is most important in cases of allergies and in cases where students are unable to participate in physical activities.
  • Complete a Medical Release form if staff is to administer medications. 
  • No medication is administered unless a parent has given written permission.

Air Quality in Calgary

Air Quality in Calgary is currently presenting a moderate risk and is forecast to rise to high risk.

With a high risk air quality rating, Environment Canada advises us to, “reduce or reschedule strenuous activities outdoors" for the at risk population, and, for the general population, to “consider reducing or rescheduling strenuous activities outdoors if you experience symptoms such as coughing and throat irritation". The at-risk population is young children, the elderly, those participating in strenuous activities, and those with breathing issues such as asthma.

Rosscarrock School Response

  • We will keep individual students inside for recess if they have asthma, breathing problems or symptoms of poor air quality such as irritated eyes, increased mucus production in the nose or throat, coughing, or difficulty breathing especially during exercise. Though we have health records on file, parents are advised to call or email the school if they would like to ensure we're aware of their child's condition.
  • We will reduce strenuous outdoor activities for all students by scheduling Physical Education indoors.
  • Homeroom teachers will advise their students to avoid strenuous playground activities such as tag or soccer, and the number of recess supervisors will be increased to closely monitor students for symptoms of poor air quality such as irritated eyes, increased mucus production in the nose or throat, coughing, or difficulty breathing especially during exercise.
  • Homeroom teachers and other teachers will monitor students for the symptoms noted above before, during, and after any outdoor activity.
  • Students displaying symptoms while outdoors will be brought into the school, preferably into an air conditioned modular classroom, for relief.
  • Parents will be contacted and health officials will be consulted if a child is experiencing difficulty.
