Illness & Medical

Attendance Line: 403-777-6930 ext. 1

It is important that you call the school if your child is going to be absent due to illness or medical appointments. Learn more on our Attendance page.


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.


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

If children are required to receive medication (including inhalers) at school, the classroom teacher and office must be informed. The correct authorization forms must be completed and signed and left at the office each year. Students required to personally carry medication will need to have written authorization from a medical doctor. If your children are sick we ask that you please keep them at home, as germs spread very easily in a school setting. 

End of Year Collection of Medications

All students who have medications (including Epi-Pens) stored at the school must have these medications picked up by parents at the end of June. Medications cannot be sent home with the students. We are unable to keep medications at school over the summer and any left will be taken for safe disposal. New medical forms must be completed each school year.

Severe Allergies

Parents of students with severe allergies are required to advise the principal and classroom teacher at the beginning of each school year. We must have emergency contact information, a recent photograph, a Student Health Plan/and or Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form completed so that the school can have appropriate emergency procedures in place. It is the responsibility of the parent to keep this and all demographic information current.

Peanut/Nut Safe & Scent Aware School

Thank you for not sending snacks and lunches containing nuts. We are also a scent aware school, as staff members and students may have severe reactions to perfume and after-shave.
