Illness & Medical

Attendance Line 403-777-6193 ext. 1.

If your child is unable to attend school due to illness, please email: scenicacres@cbe.ab.ca or call the office’s attendance line above.

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.

Food Allergies

Scenic Acres School is an “Allergy Aware” school. This means we are aware of students with allergies and work directly with families when accommodations are needed. Please do not send food to school for your child to share with others. If a child has allergies, or any medical condition, parents are required to complete the Student Health Plan each year. Additionally, conversations with teachers or office staff may be necessary. 

Medical information is shared with all staff. Staff will make reasonable accommodations for students with allergies. 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.

Medication

Parents or guardians requesting school assistance with their child’s medical needs are required to complete the following forms.

Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form

  • This form is to be used when there is a student health issue requiring attention. This includes when there is a request to administer medication. 

Student Health Plan

This form is to 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 or school registration.
