We have an obligation to provide a safe classroom environment for all students. We request that you cooperate in our efforts to protect the health of all students by keeping your child home if he/she shows signs or symptoms of being ill. If a child arrives at the school ill, or becomes ill during the day, parents/caregivers will be called and asked to take the child home. As per the Alberta Health Services Guidelines, students suffering from gastrointestinal illnesses (vomiting and/or diarrhea) must remain home until 48 hours after symptoms go away.
Christine Meikle School is a nut-free facility. Some of our students have such a severe allergy that even peanut butter on another student’s breath is life threatening. Our school needs everyone’s help to ensure the continued health of our students! Feel free to contact the school office if you have any questions around this policy.
