Prescribed Medication & Plan of Care

posted Jun 7, 2019, 6:38 AM by Erin Keen   [ updated Jun 10, 2019, 7:20 AM ]

A reminder to parents that any prescribed medication (e.g., EpiPen, puffer, antibiotics) that a student is required to take during the school day, must be accompanied by "Form 1 - School Personnel to Administer" and/or "Form 2 - Self-Administration". Families are encouraged to visit their Health Care Provider prior to the start of school to ensure all forms are completed for the first day of school.

If your child has a prevalent medical condition (e.g., Anaphylaxis, Diabetes, Epilepsy, Asthma) and currently has a Plan of Care for the 2018-2019 school year, please complete the attached Annual Review of Medical Information Form to indicate if there are any changes in regards to your child’s Plan of Care / Administration of Prescribed Medication or if there are no changes for the 2019-2020 school year.

To help ensure a smooth transition back in September, please return the completed Annual Review of Medical Information before the end of June. Completed forms can be submitted to the office. Your attention to this matter is appreciated, as your child’s health and safety while at school is of the greatest importance to us.

Of note, all epipens and inhalers housed at school will be returned to student on the last day. If your child has additional medications at school, a parent/guardian is required to come pick it up from the Main Office – thank you.

In our continuing effort to improve school effectiveness, we will be implementing the Tell Them From Me student survey (TTFM). The TTFM survey allows students to have a voice about their school climate, context, and experiences of school. Feedback is anonymous and is used by schools and the Halton District School Board to set goals and monitor targets related to school and Board improvement plans. During the course of the school year, all students will be given an opportunity to participate.  Please see the attached letter for more information.
