No Child Without: Free MedicAlert for Students:
No Child Without: Free MedicAlert for students:
In our ongoing effort to provide safe and caring schools for our students, Salisbury Composite High School is once again participating in the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation’s No Child Without program. The program is a national initiative that provides children—between the ages four of 14—who have chronic health conditions with MedicAlert services, at no cost. The goal is twofold: to help children with severe allergies, medical conditions or special needs and to assist schools with medical-emergency plans for students.
Once a child is registered, their school is provided with advice on a medical-emergency plan for that student and given a list of medications, allergies and medical conditions the student has. If your child has a serious medical condition or allergy and would benefit from MedicAlert services, please contact the school office at 780-467-8816.
