Student Registration Verification Form

Next week, students will be receiving a Student Registration Verification Form printed on green
coloured paper. Parents and guardians are asked to carefully check and review all of the information
on this form and make any necessary changes directly on the form. We are asking that all forms,
whether they require changes or not, be sent back to the school signed by the parent/guardian as
soon as possible. Please remember to check one of the consent boxes on the bottom of the form.
Student Planners

All grade 1-8 students will be receiving a student planner at a cost of $3.00 per planner. Students are
asked to give their classroom teacher their money as soon as possible. There is a great deal of useful
informationin the first few pages about school routines and procedures. Please take a few moments to
review this information with your child. Planners are often used for teacher/parent communication as
well. We would like to thank Bridgeview’s School council for providing financial support enabling us to
offset the cost of the planners!
Absences & Appointments

If your child is going to be absent from school, please call the office to let us know. This is required
as part of our Safe Arrival Policy and helps us to ensure your child’s safety.
In order to ensure the safety of all of our students, we request that parents picking up, or dropping off
their child at school, report to the office first regardless of the time of day. This helps the office staff
maintain attendance records and minimizes classroom disruptions. Any custody issues should be
reported to the office as soon as possible with supporting legal documents. Parents/guardians are
also reminded that all school doors are locked, with the exception of the red front doors near the office
in order to help ensure the safety of our school community.

Nut Free School and Anaphylaxis

We want to remind all of our families that we do have students that are highly allergic to peanuts and
nut products. If exposed to these foods an anaphylactic reaction can develop within seconds and
could lead to hives, swelling of lips, or face, choking of breath and possibly death. Foods containing
peanuts or nut products are not to be brought into the school. Remember that manufacturers change
the ingredients in products on a regular basis. Please read the labels carefully on foods sent to school
to ensure that they do not contain nuts or nut by products
MedicAlert’s No Child Without Program
This free of charge MedicAlert membership is offered to students who attend our school and are
between the ages of 4 up to their 14th birthday. If your child has a medical condition, allergy or is
required to take medication on a regular basis then you should consider a MedicAlert membership
through this program. Participation in this program allows first responders access to your child’s
medical information on their MedicAlert bracelet or necklet through an electronic health record availa-
ble on a 24 hour emergency hotline. Upon activation of the hotline, communication with the parent
or emergency contact begins and allows free updates. MedicAlert identification can alert school staff,
friends, coaches and others about your child’s medical condition should an emergency occur. For
further information visit If your child is already part of the No Child Without
program and there have been changes to their medical condition, medications or emergency contact
information, call MedicAlert at 1-866-679-3220 to update your child’s file.

inconvenience this may cause.
