Attendance Line: 403-777-8680   ext.1

It is very important that you call the school and leave a message on the attendance line each and every time your child is going to be late or absent from school. If we do not hear from you, we will be using School Messenger to call or email you to confirm your child’s absence. Please help the office staff by calling the school first!

Please leave the following information:

  • name of student(s)
  • grade(s)
  • teacher(s)
  • reason for absence or lateness
  • length of absence if known 

Attendance will be taken each morning and afternoon, and in cases where the parent/guardian has not informed the school, every effort will be made to contact the parent/guardian to verify the absence. 

Allergies

Due to the very serious nature of peanut and nut allergies for some of our students, we ask all members of the school community to avoid bringing peanut and nut products to school in snacks or lunches. While we realize that there are a number of other foods which can be potentially life threatening to those with severe allergies, we are targeting nuts. Our school wishes to be known as a “allergy sensitive” school.

Student Health

Several of our students have allergies or medical conditions that may affect their learning throughout the day. We need to know about these in order to provide a safe environment. If your child has a health concern or medical condition that may impact their time at Midnapore School, please complete the Student Health Plan form. Where there is a significant health concern that may require medication or other emergency responses, it is required that a Student Health Emergency Response Protocol form be filled out at the beginning of the school year.

Note: Medical forms are required to be filled out annually for all children who are taking any form of medicine at school. Parents of children who have an EpiPen as part of their emergency response should contact the office immediately to fill out these forms and provide us with an EpiPen to be kept in the office. Please also make sure your child’s teacher is aware of any such allergies or medical concerns immediately via phone call or email. Medication is not to be kept in backpacks under the care of a child.
