School Health Nurse
If your child becomes ill during school hours we will contact you (please keep your list of emergency numbers up-to-date). Our health nurse visits our school weekly. If you have any questions regarding your child’s health (i.e. is my child’s chicken pox contagious, can I send him to school?) You can contact a health nurse at the Haysboro Health Clinic at 403- 944-7179.

Daily Physical Activity
For safety reasons, we ask that all students have comfortable, non-slip indoor and outdoor footwear as they will participate in both indoor and outdoor physical activities. Slip on shoes and very loose footwear present safety hazards for students when running, jumping and participating in other activities.
Students in Grades 1-6 have recess time each day. This time provides students with an opportunity to play outside, weather permitting, and have a fresh air break daily. A lunch hour recess also occurs between 12:00pm and 12:20pm and 12:22 pm and 12:43 each day and teachers often take students for a "natural break" in the afternoon.
