Asthma

Many children have asthma.

Some asthma attacks can be life threatening. Rainbow District School Board staff receive asthma education and training on recognizing triggers and symptoms.

Please contact your school Principal as soon as possible.

If you are a parent/guardian of a child with asthma, we need your co-operation in providing the school with current medical information and in developing a plan with your child’s Principal to protect your child.

Please also contact the Sudbury Student Services Consortium at 705.521.1234 and inform your child’s bus driver of your child’s condition.

Students under 16 years of age who have parental permission are permitted to carry their own asthma medication with them at school.

Students 16 years of age and older do not require parental permission.
