Illness & Medical

Medical Conditions / Medications Requiring Assistance or Supervision

It is imperative that the school be made aware of any medical conditions, e.g. allergies, which impact your child’s safety and / or functioning within the school. This way we will be able to assist your child appropriately in the event of an emergency. School personnel are not authorized to dispense medicine to a child without written consent and administration details from a physician. Parents should advise their child’s homeroom teacher of any medication requirements that their child may have, particularly if it is being carried on their person. In the event of severe allergies or respiratory concerns, students should have one form of administration with them and one should remain with the office.

Medications requiring supervision to be taken during school hours require a signed release form to be on file in the office. Your physician must sign this form. If you would like us to give your child medicine at any time, you must arrange to have this form completed beforehand. These medications must be kept in the office. We would also request that you only ask school personnel to administer medication under extreme circumstances or in the event of a child requiring medication over extended periods. If you have any questions or concerns about this procedure, please feel free to call the school. We do not keep a supply of medication at school for student use.
