Leaving During School Hours
SCHOOL ASTHMA MANAGEMENT PLAN
We are pleased to inform you that this school takes its responsibilities to students with asthma very seriously.
Asthma is a condition that can be serious and may require emergency treatment while at school. It is important therefore, to have up to date information about the management of your child’s asthma.
Clothing, bags, lunch boxes, etc. need to be clearly labelled with your child’s name. A permanent marker is quite effective on the tags of most clothing and hats.
Lost property is stored in a basket opposite the computer lab. You can check there for longer term lost items. Please encourage your child(ren) to pick up their belongings after recess and lunch
Children are supervised while they eat their lunch indoors.
It is also recommended that children have play-lunch at morning recess. It is easier for children if play-lunch is wrapped separately from lunch and they know which is which.
Please note: Chewing gum or Bubble gum is not permitted at school.
Drinks in bottles or cans constitute a danger – please do not give your child these.
If your child has a particular medical condition, which requires a Medical Plan, or medications being kept at school, please notify the school as soon as possible.
Parents are required to meet the costs of their children’s participation in activities such as sport, swimming, excursions and camps. When it is necessary to send money to school, please send it in a sealed envelope, to be given to the class teacher. On the outside of the envelope, please write your child’s name, class, the purpose of the money and the amount.
