Illness and Medical

Attendance Line: 403-817-3556 ext. 1

It is important that you call the school if your child is absent or arriving late. Please report all absences to the Attendance Line. See more on our Attendance page.

Illness

If a child becomes ill during the school day, parents/guardians will be notified and, if necessary be asked to come and pick up their child. Students who are ill will wait in the office so they can be closely supervised. The most effective way to prevent the spread of illness is to have students stay home from school when they are unwell.

Allergies

We are an allergy aware school. Keeping students and staff safe 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 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 from the school. 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.

Parents/Guardians are responsible to notify the school of allergies by completing a Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form. The school will work with parents to develop a response plan that is appropriate to the circumstances of each individual student and their environment.

Medication

Forms You Need 

Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form

  • This form is to be used when there is a student health issue regarding attention. This includes when there is a request to administer medication. 

Student Health Plan

This form is to be:

  • completed if a physical or medical condition may affect the student’s attendance at school
  • completed if medication is to be taken at school,
  • reviewed and updated annually or sooner if there is a change in the student’s health concern or school registration. 

Immunization

An Alberta Health Services (AHS) program provides routine immunizations to children in Grades 1, 5, and 9 in school. Before immunizations are given, records are reviewed to see what immunizations each child needs. A consent is then sent home. For more information visit the AHS Immunization website.
