When students become ill or injured in school, first aid care will be provided. If the Health Aid determines they should not remain in school, parents will be contacted and will be responsible for taking their children home. Students must not be required to walk home alone. It is important to list the alternate contact(s) on the Emergency Card in the event that parents cannot be reached.
Students with significant medical conditions or problems should inform the school via the Emergency Card. If special consideration or physical restriction is required, a medical statement should be submitted yearly. Students with milk allergies may request juice substitution with a doctor’s verification every year. Those requiring medication must complete and submit the required paperwork through the school nurse.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT PARENTS KEEP THE SCHOOL UPDATED OF IMPORTANT PHONE AND OTHER CONTACT NUMBERS NEEDED FOR EMERGENCIES.
