Allergies

Nut Free School

We have children at our school who are allergic to nuts and related nut products. Parents must indicate any special health concerns on the school registration for their child and are encouraged to ensure classroom teachers are also aware of health issues.

Student Health Plan

Please inform us if your child requires a Student Health Plan. The Student Health Plan form should be:

  • completed if a physical or medical condition may affect the student’s attendance at school;
  • completed if medication is to be taken at school;
  • reviewed and updated annually or sooner if there is a change in the student’s health concern.
