As you may be aware, Ryan's Law, 2015, was passed in the spring by the Ontario Legislature. This piece of legislation is an important step to support the well-being of students with asthma in Ontario schools.
Over the course of this school year, the Lambton Kent District School Board will be working to implement the requirements of this legislation. A key component is that with your permission, your child will be allowed to carry their asthma medication with them while at school. Please contact the school to make arrangements for this option if you have not already done so.
The board is nearing release of an Administrative Procedure to guide planning and decisions in support of students who have asthma. It will be available on the board’s web site once released.
Additionally, you may wish to check the Ministry of Education website for resources on asthma that can be found at the link below.
