Safe Arrival Program

Please call the school if your child is going to be away. leave your child’s name and your child’s teacher’s name in your message. We try to contact parents if there are students whose absence is unexplained. Students arriving late should report to the office before they go to class.

School Grounds

  • Students are not allowed to leave the grounds during school hours without permission from parent/guardian.
  • Bicycles must be walked to and from the bike rack and must be locked. Ride carefully and wear a helmet.
  • Contact games are not allowed.
  • The area by the back packing lot is a ‘no ball’ zone.
  • Be environmentally conscious – don’t litter.
  • Throw your garbage out before you go outside.

Fire Drills

Fire drills will be practised periodically so that everyone in the school will be able to exit the building should an emergency arise. During a fire drill, students should file out in an orderly manner according to the teacher’s directions. Advance notice will be given to parents.

Lock Down Drills

Lock down drills will also be practised periodically. There may be a time when the students need to remain in their classrooms with the doors locked due to the presence of a dangerous intruder. At this time, the primary objective is to keep students away from the dangerous person. Advance notice of drills will be given to parents.

Playground Safety

Students are expected to play safely in designated areas. Parking lots are out of bounds.

Medications

It is the responsibility of the parent to inform the school of any medical condition affecting your child(ren). Please keep the school updated on changes in your child’s health.If a student is required to receive oral medication of any kind while at school, parents are to contact the school secretary and complete the appropriate forms. No non-prescription drugs (such as aspirin etc.) will be given to students requesting it.Students with severe medical conditions should wear medical alert bracelets and carry medications in a fanny pack. This is to ensure that action taken will be safe, appropriate, and immediate.

Allergies and Medical Concerns

Students with allergic concerns seem to be on the rise. We currently enrol students who have serious allergic reactions when coming into contact with certain foods. We ask everyone’s cooperation in helping to reduce the risk by refraining from sending these products to school.
Through newsletters, we will attempt to keep parents informed of potentially dangerous substances. We do not discriminate against children with non-contagious health concerns. We do our best to serve the educational needs of all of our students.
