Illness & Medical

Attendance Line 403-777-6950  ext. 1.

It is important that you call the school if your child is going to be absent or arriving late.  

Student Health

Parents need to be aware that school personnel are NOT authorized to dispense medication to students without your
written consent on a CBE Medication Application and Release Form.

If children are required to receive medication (including inhalers) during the day at school, the classroom teacher and office must be informed. The correct authorization forms must be completed and signed and left at the office each year.

Illness

If your child is ill, please keep them at home until they are well enough to participate in all school activities. If your child becomes ill during the school day, we will contact you and you will be expected to arrange for your child to be picked up as soon as possible.

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.
  • In the case of open and or heavily bleeding wounds, broken bones, unconsciousness, etc. the school will call an ambulance and parents immediately. 
  • Accident insurance is provided upon request and forms are sent home in September.

Allergies

Parents of students with severe allergies are required to advise the principal and classroom teacher at the beginning
of each school year. We must have updated emergency contact information, a recent photograph, and other
information so that the school can have appropriate emergency procedures in place. It is the responsibility of the
parent to keep this and all demographic information current.

Forms can be accessed in the office.

Medication

Parents or guardians requesting school assistance with their child’s medical needs are required to complete the following forms.

Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form

  • This form is to be used when there is a student health issue requiring attention. This includes when there is a request to administer medication. 

Student Health Plan

This form is to be:

  • completed if a physical or medical condition may affect the student’s attendance at school
  • completed if medication is to be taken at school
  • reviewed and updated annually or sooner if there is a change in the student’s health concern or school registration.

Health Services

Alberta Health Services supports our school community by providing nursing services approximately one-half day per week. These services include the following:

  • Acting as a support and resource for students and families.
  • Providing health information to students, teachers and parents.
  • Providing immunization.
  • Acting as a resource about the common diseases of children.

If you wish to contact our school nurse, simply contact our school office.
