It is a designated no parking zone as well as a fire lane. We kindly ask that if you are dropping off students in grades 1-8, that you use the drop off at the side of the building. Students will not be permitted to enter the school through the front doors unless they are arriving after the bell.

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.
