Keeping our School Safe and Healthy

If you have a child with a Prevalent Medical Condition (Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, and/or Epilepsy) we want to make sure we have a current Plan of Care to support your child.  

The Plan of Care form is a new document that replaces the Emergency Action Plan. All parents of children with Prevalent Medical Conditions are asked to fill out the new Plan of Care and submit to the school.  You can download the forms here dsbn.org/prevalent-medical-conditions. 

For more information, please contact the school.

DO YOUR BEST DO WHAT's RIGHT

DO WHAT's EXPECTED and GOOD THINGS HAPPEN!
