Dear Parents/Guardians


In the case of ongoing serious medical conditions (such as but not limited to; severe, life threatening allergies, diabetes, epilepsy, heart conditions, asthma) Office administration requires the parent/guardian to submit the necessary documents on or within two weeks of the start of the new school year. 


Emergency medication, labelled with the student’s name and expiry date, is kept safe and accessible in locations which are known to all staff. 


It is highly recommended that each anaphylactic student carry an auto injector at all times and that an extra be kept in the office. 


Documents already submitted for the previous school year are deemed expired as of August 31. 


Parents/guardians are responsible for providing the necessary documentation.
