Please report all absences to the Attendance Line at 403-777-6730. See more on our Attendance page.
If your child has any health concerns please make sure a student health plan is completed through the main office. Although registration forms do ask for health concerns we need a more detailed form in order to provide medication or attention towards health issues.
In case of a medical emergency, the school will phone 9-1-1 and notify the parent. If a child has been bumped on the head, the school will call the parent to notify them. All other minor accidents (bumps and scrapes) will be treated with ice and Band-Aids.
It is very important that the school have phone numbers where parents can be reached. Please ensure we also have the name and phone number of an alternate person to be contacted if a parent cannot be reached. Please ensure that we have a record of these contacts in the office.
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.
Children who are not feeling well should be kept home from school as it is extremely difficult for them to engage in their work. They may also pass their illness on to other children or staff members and create further absences. Remember to contact the school to report your child’s absence. Children who become ill at school will be taken to the nurse’s room and, if they are too ill to return to class, a parent will be notified. A child is never sent home alone. Please instruct your children that if they are sick or hurt they should inform their teacher or the office.
If you child has significant medical concerns, please let the teacher and the office know. When medication must be taken at school, a Student Health Plan Form must be completed by parents and kept in the office for reference. Medication must come to school in the original pharmacy container and be clearly marked with the child’s name and teacher. Vitamins, cough drops and other medication that could be taken outside school hours will not be administered at school.
