Illness & Medical

Attendance Line: 403-777-6424 ext. 1

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

Medications 

If your child needs medication to be administered at school, we require a Request for Assistance to Administer Medication form be completed and signed. In the case of severe allergies, an Epi-Pen is required at school. To obtain a medical form, go to the CBE Forms You Need page.

Illness

When your children are ill, please keep them home until they have recuperated so that illness does not spread. We hope that when children return they will be able to fully participate in the life of the school. If there are unusual circumstances please send a note with your child so that our staff is aware of what needs to be modified.

Allergies

We have come to appreciate that a significant number of our students live with allergies and food intolerances, some of which are life-threatening (e.g. nuts). As a result, we ask that students do not share food so that each family can control their own child’s food intake and as a school, we can support each child’s safety. Our staff is trained in how to respond in case of an allergic reaction and we would also ask for parent support.

Please assist us by:

  • Helping your child understand the discomfort and potentially life threatening nature of allergies.
  • Avoiding sending nuts, and nut products such as Nutella, to school. Parents will be notified if other foods are identified as life threatening for our students.
  • Emphasizing the importance of only eating foods sent from your home.
