Medication at School

Parents should be aware that the school personnel are not authorized to dispense medicine to your child. If children are required to take medication (including Ventolin inhalers, etc.) during the school day, the office must be informed and a Medication Release Form must be signed. No medicine will be given to students without this form.

Rundle Patrols

Rundle Patrols work very hard to keep our students safe. Please encourage your children to cross with patrols. We also ask that parents drop off students away from the crosswalks.

Please remember if the patrols are on duty, all pedestrians are expected to cross with patrols.

Times that patrols are on duty:

• 7:45 to 8:00 a.m.
• 2:40 to 2:55 p.m.

We appreciate having students arrive ten minutes in advance in order to do their duty.

Picking Up Students

Doors are locked for security purposes. We ask that all parents, babysitters and siblings set a meeting place outside. All students will leave from their designated doors and meet their siblings outside. Please make sure your children know where their meeting place is.

Bicycles

For those students who ride a bicycle to school, please remember to get off and walk your bicycle when on school property. Bicycle racks are provided for students so that you can lock up your bicycle, however the school cannot be held responsible for damaged or lost property. Please do not bring a bike without a lock and do not bring a bike if you do not feel that it will be safe when locked outside, as the school cannot be housing bikes within the building.

Identifying Your Child's Articles

Please mark all of your child’s shoes, bags, boots, mittens and school supplies. This will help in the returning of lost articles to the right child. Please check the lost and found by the grade 5/6 exit doors if your child has lost an item.

Student Safety - No Stopping Zone

A reminder to drivers that with school back in, the signs posted in the school area need to be obeyed for the safety of our students. There is a “no stopping” zone in front of our school. This means that you cannot even stop to drop off your child. Please watch for the signs. Parking control officials will be monitoring the school occasionally. Tickets have and will be issued to those who do not abide by the rules.

Jaywalking is not permitted in front of the school. This includes cutting between the parked buses. Please use the crosswalks, and patrollers if they are on duty. Children learn from what they see parents do.

The parking lot is for staff only. Please do not enter the parking lot to drop off or pick up your child. Please arrange another pick up spot for meeting your child.

Cold Weather

As winter has arrived in Calgary, parents are reminded that students must be dressed suitably for the weather. This includes: coats, hats, gloves or mittens, scarves, socks and winter boots.

If your child is in need of any of the above items, please call Mrs. Androsoff at the school.

Students will not be sent outside if the weather conditions, as outlined by Environment Canada, drop to –18 C or colder, including the wind chill, or if other severe weather conditions occur. Please remember that students are outside for recess for 15 minutes each day and need to be dressed for the weather. Students are reminded to look for the “blue dot” on doors and windows letting them know it is too cold to be outside on truly inclement days.

If students walk to school, they must be dressed for the walk and time to wait for the bell to ring.

Students are asked to arrive at school as close to bell times as possible during cold weather.

Students involved in our lunchroom program must be suitably dressed for outdoors over the lunch hour. Decisions regarding severe weather will be made each day through Environment Canada, in the same manner as the recess decision is made.
