Attendance Line 403-777-7430 ext. 1

Accidents 

In case of an emergency, it is very important that the school have phone numbers where parents can be reached. Please ensure we also have the name and phone number of an alternate person to be contacted if a parent cannot be reached. Please ensure that we have a record of these contacts in the office. Learn more about Attendance.

Illness At School 

The nurse’s room is located in the office. The room is for the short-term use of students who are ill and who are waiting for a parent/guardian to retrieve them. Students who feel ill or require first aid will be directed to the office by their teacher and will then be looked after by an administrator. Students who become so ill during school hours that they cannot remain in class for the balance of the day will be referred to the office. The office staff will contact parents in order to have them pick up their child or give permission for him/her to go home.

Allergies

Nut allergies are present in our school as are other food allergies. Teachers are well informed about the needs of students in their classrooms. Please check with them before sending anything for the class to the school.

Please know, we are an,”allergy aware” school. Keeping students and staff from a variety of allergens is a shared responsibility of students, staff and parents.

Students, taking into account their individual abilities are responsible for developing skills at managing their personal allergy awareness. This is often accomplished by simply not sharing foods with others and asking, “Does this contain _____________?”

Staff Responsibilities

Staff are responsible for being aware of allergy information provided to the school by parents. Staff will make reasonable accommodations for students with allergies. The school does not ban particular foods. If you have specific questions about our allergy procedures please contact your child’s teacher for classroom questions and the main office for  lunchroom or school-wide concerns.

No Dogs Allowed

Dogs are not permitted on school property (even when leashed) unless they are here for instructional purposes, pre-arranged through the teacher, so that allergy precautions may be taken if needed.

Attendance

Please report all student absences to the school by calling 403-777-7430 ext. 1. Students who are not feeling well should not be sent to school as it is extremely difficult for them to engage in their work. They may also pass their illness on to other students and staff, contributing to other absences. If a student must stay indoors, a dated note must be sent with the student indicating the reason and duration.
