Medication Management for Students

If your child has asthma and uses an inhaler please fill out the Asthma Emergency Plan and Student Medical - Parent/Guardian Consent and submit them to the school office:
If your child requires an Epi-Pen please fill out Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan and submit to the school office. We ask that the child's EpiPen's remain in their backpack unless other arrangements are made.
We also have a generic Medical Emergency Plan if the other forms are not quite right.
No Child Without
The No Child Without program provides FREE Medical Identification Services for elementary school children.
In an emergency situation information about your child's medical conditions is critical. In many cases, children are unable to communicate this important information. MedicAlert Foundation Canada is a charitable organization that provides children attending a participating school with one FREE MedicAlert ID and FREE MedicAlert membership coverage between the ages of 4 & 14. If you are interested in this program please see office staff for a Pine Street bar code & PIN number so you can enroll your child.

Prevention of Head Lice
Make head checks for lice a regular part of your child's personal hygiene routine. Head lice is one of the most common problems faced by school-aged children and their families. Cases of head lice often increase following school breaks. While head lice control is primarily a parent responsibility, parents, the school and community all have a role to play. We strongly encourage you to speak to your children about proactive behavior to prevent the spread of head lice. This includes not sharing combs, hats, pillows and hair accessories and to avoid head to head contact. You child should know that teasing other students about head lice is unacceptable because just like the common cold, anyone can get head lice. Head lice does not jump from head to head and is not dangerous. Although head lice is not considered a health issue it can cause stress, anxiety and hardship for staff, students and parents. It is essential that each family does its part at home by undertaking regular screening and removal of lice and nits as part of routine personal hygiene. Please check out the following updated resources that include links to online videos on how to properly treat and screen for head lice. These resources are also available on the EIPS website and from our school office.
