Supporting Students with Prevalent Medical Conditions - Please book your plan of care meeting

posted Aug 21, 2018, 6:08 AM by Erin Keen

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Education released Policy Program Memorandum 161: Supporting Students with Prevalent Medical Conditions. School Boards across Ontario are expected to implement PPM 161 by September 2018. As a result, the HDSB has updated several Administrative Procedures to better support students who have Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders. With the revised HDSB procedures, students who have any of the listed prevalent medical conditions, must have a Plan of Care in place. Furthermore, the Plan of Care must be co-created by the student, parent and school staff.

If your child has a prevalent medical condition that requires you and your student to meet with school staff to co-create a Plan of Care for the 2018-2019 school year. Please contact Erin Keen, by August 23, 2018 to set up a discussion date and time. Plan of Care meetings will occur from Monday August 27 to Friday September 14. Erin Keen can be reached by email keene@hdsb.ca or by calling the school at 905-845-7478. Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated, as your child’s health and safety while at school is of the greatest importance to us.
