As you may be aware, the Ontario Legislature recently passed Ryan’s Law, 2015. This piece of legislation is an important step to support the well being of students with asthma in Ontario schools.
Over the course of the next school year, the Upper Grand DSB will be working to implement the requirements of this legislation.
If your child has asthma, we ask that you immediately contact the main office so that we can identify all students who take asthma medication. Your child is allowed to carry this medication. Children under the age of 16 years need parental permission.
The Ministry of Education website has resources on asthma that can be found at:
As a best practice and to support your child, please let the school know if your child has a medical condition so that the school is aware and can keep this information on file.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school directly.
