Illness & Medical

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.

Health Services

The medical room is located in the office. Students who are ill and who are waiting for a parent or guardian to pick them up may use it on a short-term basis. If first aid is required, students should report to the office. A Public Health Nurse will be available at the school a half day per week. In the interest of nutrition, “energy drinks” and/or frosted drinks (slurpees, iced cappuccinos, etc.) are not permitted at school.
