Illness & Medical

Attendance Line 403-777-6110 ext. 1

It is important that you call the school if your child is going to be absent or arriving late.  

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 and Injuiries

Should your child be injured at school the following procedures will be followed:

  • A staff member will take action to ensure the safety of the student and administer minor first aid.
  • The parent or guardian will be telephoned and apprised of the situation and asked, if necessary, to come to the school to advise us of their wishes regarding their child’s injury.
  • If we are unable to contact the parent or guardian, the administrator in charge will decide if emergency treatment is necessary.
  • If immediate emergency treatment appears to be necessary, the child will be transported via ambulance to Alberta Children’s Hospital and the parents or guardian will be advised as soon as possible. 

Allergies

We are committed to providing a safe environment that is inclusive for all children. A number of our students have a potentially life-threatening allergy to peanut and tree nuts. 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. We ask that parents who are sending in classroom treats, please avoid the noted products. Staff is trained annually in the administration of an Epipen.
