Illness & Medical


If you child is not feeling well, please do not send them to school.  Please leave a message (child's first and last name, and the reason for absence ) on the school's attendance line.  Student showing symptoms in school will be isolated and parents will be required to pick them up as soon as possible.

For COVID 19 symptoms, please refer to the following important Alberta Health links :


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. Medications 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. 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.


Forms You Need 

Student Health Emergency Response Protocol Form
This form is to be used when there is a student health issue regarding 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.

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird?

RT @kinggeorgecbe: Le défi du flocon de neige a commencé! Comment est-ce que tous les élèves dans chaque classe vont créer un flocon de neige qui est aussi grand que Mme Shafina ou Mme Renée, en utilisant seulement le papier, les ciseaux et la laine? @CBELanguages #WeAreCBE

RT @KeelerSchool: Grade 6 students created pictograph rocks using symbols and colours to communicate their connections to the land. #WeAreCBE #Keeler
