Safe School Arrival Program
In our efforts to ensure the safety of each of our students, we ask that parents contact the school if their children will be absent. Our office is open from 7:30-3:30. Should you wish to call outside of office hours, you may leave a message on our answering machine, at (613) 476-6475.
Nut Allergy Alert
Queen Elizabeth School is a nut and peanut free zone. We have a number of students in our school community with life-threatening nut allergies.
In our attempt to provide a safe environment for all members of our school community who live with anaphylaxis, we ask that all snacks and lunches be free from any nuts or nut products. Please carefully read the labels of all foods sent to school, to ensure that products do not contain traces of nuts or nut products. Should a student bring items containing nuts or traces of nuts, the products will be removed from the classroom immediately, and returned home at the end of the day.
Thank you for helping us to ensure the safety of our students, staff and guests.
