Public Health Nurse
A Public Health Nurse works on a part-time basis at the school, whose availability is determined by the regional health authority. Their role is to be a consultant and resource person for a variety of health concerns. The focus of this service in the school is a preventative approach, so there is an emphasis on immunization and communicable-disease control, as well as screening for vision and hearing problems. Health counselling is available to any students who have health concerns, which may be identified by teachers, parents, or themselves.

Illness and Injury
Students exhibiting signs of illness will be moved to a supervised, designated infirmary room or area in the school. Parents/caregivers will be notified and advised to pick up their child immediately, within one hour. Parents/guardians must designate an emergency contact for student pick up if they are unable to pick up their child. All families must adhere to this.
Students who suffer an injury in class must let their teacher know immediately. If a student must leave class, he/she must report to the Main Office. In the case of serious injury, parents/guardians will be notified, and arrangements made to have the student picked up or sent home. If deemed necessary, EMS will be contacted.
