Medical Conditions

Your child's health and safety is our number one priority when they are at school.  Therefore, we want to be well informed about any serious medical conditions that may be afflicting your child.  We need to keep records in our school of the following critical medical conditions:

 

      • Asthma
      • Allergies (anaphylaxis)
      • Epilepsy
      • Other Prevalent Medical Condition (e.g. Diabetes)
 
The Ontario government requires schools to keep individual plans of care for students with the above listed medical conditions.  These plans of care outline procedures and contacts tailored to the specific needs of each student.
 
If your child has been diagnosed with any of the above medical conditions you will need to complete and submit the forms connected with each diagnosis.  Also, if your child requires medications administered at school you will need to complete the appropriate form.  Below is a summary of the forms needed along with links so you can download the necessary forms.  Once they are completed, have them submitted to our school so their classroom teacher and our staff are well aware of your child's medical needs.
 
Please download the required form (see below).  Complete the form with the necessary signatures and return to the school office.  You may also scan your completed documents and email to vwotypka@ldcsb.ca or pgelakis@ldcsb.ca.
 
Asthma
Complete the Plan of Care form form for Asthma.  Please note that a physician's signature is not required for any of their needed asthma medications.
 
Allergies
Complete the Plan of Care form for Allergies/Anaphylaxis. If you child has been diagnosed with allergies (e.g. bee sting allergy), we do require a physician's signature to administer the necessary medications in the event of a medical emergency.
 
Epilepsy
If you child has been diagnosed with Epilepsy please complete the appropriate form.  This form must also include a physician's signature along with the medicine name and dosage to be administered in the event of a medical emergency.
 
Other Prevalent Medical Conditions
For any other prevalent medical conditions, including Diabetes, a Plan of Care form must be completed.  Here also, a physician's signature is required along with instructions and dosages for administering the medication in the event of a medical emergency.
 
Make sure to communicate with your child's teacher the nature of their medical conditions and how best to support them when they are not feeling well.  Early and regular communication with your child's teacher will ensure that your child's medical need(s) is well supported.
