Illness & Medical

Attendance Line at 403-777-6740 ext. 1.

It is important that you call the school if your child is 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 and 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

Several students have a potentially life-threatening allergy to peanuts. If peanut butter, peanut, a peanut product such as peanut oil enters the body of these children through the eyes, nose or mouth, the student experiences very strong reactions. Without immediate medical treatment the student could die.

All of our school staff, including lunch program staff, have been made aware of this situation and have been instructed in the correct administration of an Epipen. Prevention, of course, is the best approach for reducing the risk of a severe reaction. We will be discussing the situation with the other students in the classrooms and asking them not to share snacks, treats or lunches with any other students. Please remind your child not to share treats or lunch items with other students.

We need your help to make our school safe for all students by keeping all nuts and nut products out of our school. Please remember the health and safety of these children and sent lunches/snack that are free of peanuts and peanut products. The families of these children will appreciate your support.
