Attendance Line 403-777-6267 ext. 1.
It is important that you call the school if your child is going to be absent or arriving late.
From time to time students become ill at school. If it is a minor illness, a student can rest in the nurse’s room for a brief time until it is determined that he/she is able to go back to class or should go home to recover. When a student is too ill to return to class, parents will be expected to make arrangements to come to the school to pick up their child. The school should be made aware of any medical problems so that we are best able to assist a student in the event of an emergency.
School personnel are not authorized to dispense medicine to a child without written consent. A form needs to be completed. All students with asthma must have their puffers available at all times. Students with severe allergies must have 1 epipen located in the school at all times for safety
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.
The Calgary Health Region has assigned a nurse who provides support to our school as requested. The nurse can provide information about vision and hearing screen tests and vaccinations, and will provide general health support.
We are committed to providing a safe environment that is inclusive for all children. A number of our students have a potentially life-threatening allergy to peanut and tree nuts. Parents of children with allergies must fill out appropriate forms (also available in the office) and ensure the school has the necessary medication on-hand should a reaction occur. We ask that parents who are sending in classroom treats, please avoid the noted products. Staff is trained annually in the administration of an Epipen.
