Friday Update - June 22, 2018


Updated Anaphylaxis Policy

Please note that effective for the 2018-2019 school year St. Matthew's Elementary has an updated Anaphylaxis Policy.  The policy will be available to view in our updated Parent Handbook (which will be available on our school's website in mid-July 2018).  Some of the highlights of this updated policy include:

• Parents of children with anaphylactic allergies will be required to complete the Student Emergency Response Plan which requires the signature of the child’s physician.

• Children at risk of anaphylaxis will carry one auto-injector with them at all times.  

• Children should carry their auto-injector with them while they are in their classroom, in gym/music classes, at the church, outside at recess, at a sporting/club event or offsite at a field trip.  

• Parents of students who do not have their auto-injector with them at all times will be phoned for the auto-injector to be brought to school.

If you have any questions and/or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Miss Welsh.

Many thanks to all who attended the golf tournament last Saturday.  It was a great weather day for our golfers and for many of the families who came out to enjoy the activities.  Both Fr.
