It is important that you call the school if your child is going to be absent or arriving late. Please report all absences to the Attendance Line at 403-817-3552 ext. 1. See more on our Attendance page.

Medical

Students with a) medical issues that may have an effect on attendance, b) necessitate the need for medications to be taken at school, or c) require teachers to be aware of the condition, should complete the Student Health Plan and the Student Health Emergency Protocol forms.

Medications should be dropped off at the main office. Epipens should be dropped off at the main office and students requiring an epipen should also have one on their person at all times.

Allergies 

We Are an Allergy Aware School

We have many students with severe allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. For this reason we strive for a nut-free environment. We ask that parents do not send foods containing nuts to school with their child. Students with severe allergies should complete the forms identified in the medical section. 

We realize that on occasion parents may wish to send food items for class celebrations. In cases such as this we ask that parents give the classroom teacher two days notice, include all ingredients on the packaging, and purchase labeled nut-free foods where possible. 

We do our best to keep parents informed of activities involving food and ensuring that food is nut-safe. It is ultimately up to the student to not take any food they are not sure is nut-free.

As a school community we ask that you follow these steps to keep our children with Peanut or Nut allergies safe: 

  • Do not send peanuts, peanut butter and/or nuts to school with our children. 
  • Do encourage children to wash their hands at home before coming to school if they have had nuts or peanut butter. 
  • Do have students with severe allergies advocate for themselves to their teachers and classmates; gentle reminders to non-allergic friends/staff would be helpful. 
  • Do have parents fill out the severe allergies information form available at the office. 
  • Do have every student who has an anaphylactic allergy carry an epipen at all times (ie. not in your locker) and wear a medical alert bracelet. 
  • Do try alternatives to peanut butter, or try more peanut-free snacks. 
  • Do look for food labels that say “Peanut and Nut Free” (for example, Nestle chocolate bars instead of M&Ms).
