Welcome to Senator Gibson Public School

From the office:

It is hard to believe another school year has gone by. It is also hard to believe that next week is officially my last week at Senator Gibson.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the school and would like to thank the staff for their hard work and dedication to the students and community. To the parents, thank you for your support and working collaboratively to make the best decisions for your children.  To the students, thank you for brightening my days with your positive energy and amazing talents!  You are all amazing and I will miss being a Gator!  I wish all of you the best of luck and a wonderful summer! 

Sincerely,

S. Hancox

Important Message About Anaphylaxis:

There are students who attend our school that suffer from anaphylaxis.  Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction that affects 2 or more organs, so severe that in some cases it can be life threatening. Its onset is so swift that from time of exposure to death can be as short as 15 minutes.

We have children with severe allergies to peanuts, nuts and nut products, shellfish, bananas and eggs. Just touching or smelling one of these allergens can cause a life threatening anaphylactic reaction for students at our school. Prevention is the best approach!  We ask your cooperation in using discretion when sending food to the school.  We also request that you speak to your child about these allergies and about the importance of washing their hands with soap and warm water.

As a staff, in accordance with the parents of these students, we have developed a plan to deal with this situation.  We know that if we work together, we can help to create a safe learning environment for all of our students.  If you have any questions about this request or about anaphylaxis, please call the school office.

On behalf of these students, their parents, and the Senator Gibson Public School staff, we thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
