Asthma Policy

Asthma is a very common chronic lung disease that can make it hard to breathe. 

The Upper Grand District School Board adopted a new policy in June 2016 to provide support for students with Asthma.  If your child has asthma, the policy requires an Asthma Management Plan (AMP) to be completed by parents, a child’s doctor and the principal of the school. 

A copy of this plan is available on the Board’s website under Policy 516.  Parents are requested to complete the AMP and return it to the school as soon as possible at the beginning of the school year.   Authorization for the collection of this information is in the Education Act.

The purpose is to collect and share medical information and to administer proper medical care in the event of an emergency or life-threatening situation. Users of this information may be principals, teachers, support staff, volunteers, bus operators and drivers. This form will be kept for a minimum period of one calendar year.

Contact person concerning this collection is the school principal.
