Accidents / Illness at School

All accidents must be immediately reported to the school office. Students who have been involved in an accident will be given care and parents/guardians will be notified.

Seriously injured students will be taken to the Wetaskiwin Hospital by ambulance if necessary. The infirmary is located in the General Office.

If a student is feeling ill, a staff member will send the student to the infirmary where they may stay until feeling better. If necessary, the student may phone home so that he/she may leave.

We encourage parents to keep their children home when they are sick. Should your child be ill they may catch up when they return to school – please request homework only if it will be completed and returned.

Administration of Medication

Students are not permitted to bring medications with them to school to self-medicate. If your child requires medication during the day, you will be required to supply the school with a form signed by your doctor.

These forms are available online ( – Documents 315-1 or 315-2) or at the school. A staff member(s) will be assigned to monitor the administration of the medication and store the medication unless other arrangements have been made with school administration.
