Illness & Medical

Attendance Line 403-777-8330  ext. 1.

It is important that you call the school if your child is going to be absent or arriving late.  

Illness

If your child is ill, please keep them at home until they are well enough to participate in all school activities. If your child becomes ill during the school day, we will contact you and you will be expected to arrange for your child to be picked up as soon as possible.

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.

Allergies

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. 

Medication

Parents or guardians requesting school assistance with their child’s medical needs are required to complete the following forms.

Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form

  • This form is to be used when there is a student health issue requiring 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.

BEST MORNING MEETING EVER! We opened our online learning journey this morning by acknowledging the land, and sharing this beautiful story with our entire Glendale Family! It was also so touching to hear the kids yelling ‘love you!’ before they hung up 🥰#wearecbe https://t.co/SDkUQWUN1c

RT @glendale_evans: Read this gem of a book this morning! The kids feel like a treaty needs to start with a promise, and so we spent some quiet time in the garden thinking of promises that we believe are important to keep with all living things. @glendalecbe https://t.co/DS7MfIAftV

RT @glendale_evans: We began our Literacy Workshop this morning with a multimodal choice board! Students have opportunities to engage with images, photo sets, poetry, podcasts, and short stories with multiple options to demonstrate understanding. @glendalecbe #CBEliteracy https://t.co/Mz5pKzXr2d
