Illness & Medical

email | WoodmanAttendance@cbe.ab.ca (type student's first & last name in subject line)

phone | 403-777-7490 ext. 1 (clearly provide student's first & last name, then spell last name)

It is important that you contact the school office 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

If you have an accident in class, on the field or in the gym and first aid is required, students will be accompanied by a classmate to the office, with consent from the teacher.  It is important to inform the teacher of an accident, so that appropriate reporting and follow up communication with parents can occur.  The office staff is also always ready to assist students and make them feel comfortable.  In the event of a more serious accident, emergency services and parents will be contacted immediately. 

All families of students with severe medical profiles are required to complete the Student Health Plan and Student Health Emergency Response Protocol forms, which are included in the package sent home on the first day of school. Please return them to the office immediately. Information on medical conditions and severe allergies will be kept on file in the main office and information shared with teachers.  

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, please avoid tree nuts including peanuts. 

We are a peanut-aware environment so please refrain from bringing peanut products to school. In the event of a severe allergy and use an epi-pen, students must be able to have access to one (in the binder, backpack, fanny pack, etc.) and a second one must be brought to the main office for safe-keeping. Personalized plans should be arranged between the family, homeroom teacher, and student so that everyone can eat safely within the classroom or common areas.  While teachers promote solid education on the matter of anaphylaxis, they cannot control the known or unknown food choices of individual students.  Good citizenship on this serious matter is expected by everyone.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
