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.

Allergies | Nut-Aware School

Parents of children with allergies must fill out appropriate forms (also available in the office) and ensure the school has the necessary medication on-hand should a reaction occur. Teachers and other staff have been trained to recognize symptoms and administer medication. We ask that parents who are sending in classroom treats to avoid any type of tree nuts including peanuts.  

In conversations with parents it has come to our attention that there are a number of students with severe allergies to nuts, peanuts and/or perfume (cologne). We would like the cooperation of all students and families to please be aware of the content of your child’s lunch and snacks. For example: the oil from nuts, whether it is airborne or residue left on a table, can have serious effects on a number of our students. Please keep this in mind when students are preparing lunches, or if students are bringing in items for bake sales, snacks, and/or class treats. Likewise, I have similar concerns with perfume. Though the allergic reactions that our students have to perfumes is not as serious as the allergic reactions to nuts, there are issues when the students are confined to the bus or a classroom. Please be aware that there are a number of students at Sir John Franklin who are allergic to these two items.
