Parents are asked not to send children to school if they are ill. Please contact our school by phone (604-795-5312) and leave a message on our answering machine or email Mrs. Gieselman and the classroom teacher to report an absence. If your child has been diagnosed with any contagious illness, and is not home with the common cold/flu, we appreciate if you would inform the school as soon as possible and that parents/guardians follow the doctors recommendation to keep the child at home to avoid further spread of the illness in the school. If a student has a medical condition that may require emergency action (diabetes, epilepsy, anaphylaxis, asthma etc.), it is important that we have a medical alert planning form to refer to in an emergency. These forms are available at the school office and it is the parent's responsibility to ensure the forms are completed and updated each year.
If medication is to be administered to a student during school hours, the below form Prescription Medication at School form completed by the prescribing physician. The medication must be provided in the original labeled container and updated as needed. Medications are kept in the office while school is in session and taken home at the end of the school year.
For more information, please contact our school secretary, Mrs. Gieselman
