Illness & Medical

Attendance Line: 403-817-3516 ext. 1

Student Illness

If a child becomes ill during the school day, parents will be notified and, if necessary be asked to come and pick up their child. Students who are ill will wait in the office so they can be closely supervised. The most effective way to prevent the spread of illness is to have students stay home from school when they are unwell.

Food, Snacks and Treats

Parents have a wide number of reasons for restricting or monitoring the types of food their children consume. We respect parents’ decisions and responsibility in determining what food their child can consume at school. For these reasons we will never distribute food, snacks or treats to children without the expressed consent of a parent or guardian. We are unable to accept or hand out food treats in a classroom (cupcakes, birthday treats).

Student Medication

Parents need to be aware that school personnel are NOT authorized to dispense medication without the written consent of the parent on a CBE Student Health Plan Form. If children are required to receive medication (including Ventolin inhalers) during the day at school, the classroom teacher and office must be informed. The correct authorization forms must be completed and signed and filed in the school office each year.

Allergies

New Brighton School is an allergy aware school. Keeping students and staff safe from a variety of allergens is a shared responsibility of students, staff and parents. Students, taking into account their individual abilities, are responsible for developing skills at managing their personal allergy awareness. This is often accomplished by simply not sharing foods with others and asking, “Does this contain... ?”

Staff are responsible for being aware of allergy information provided to the school by parents. Staff will make reasonable accommodations for students with allergies. The school does not ban particular foods from the school. If you have specific questions about our allergy procedures please contact your child’s teacher for classroom questions and the main office for lunchroom or school-wide concerns.

Parents are responsible to notify the school of allergies by completing a Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form. The school will work with parents to develop a response plan that is appropriate to the circumstances of each individual student and their environment.

Emergency Forms

An emergency form must be completed for each child. This information is vital to ensure the proper care and safety of your child during an illness or emergency. When giving the name and phone number of an alternate contact we would ask that the person is someone who is available to pick up the child at school if necessary. Please notify us immediately of any changes so we are able to keep accurate records.
