Orange Shirt Day

If you are wondering what Orange Shirt Day is all about watch the following video:

 

Orange Shirt Day Video

 

 Having a conversation at home will help bring some understanding around the topic for you and your children

  

Parents here are some questions you could ask your children:

- What sort of bad things happened in Residential Schools?

- What was the purpose of Residential Schools? (Why were they created?)

- How would you or your family react if you had to go to one of these schools?

- Why is learning about this part of Canadian history important?

IMMUNIZATION NOTICE FOR PARENTS

Public Health Nurses will be in your school approximately four times throughout the school year providing routine immunization to students in grades 1, 6, and 8.  In certain instances such as follow-up when there is case of vaccine preventable disease in the school or classroom, children in other grades may also receive a vaccine at school.  Through the schools, the Public Health Nurse will send out a consent form before the scheduled day of immunization.  You can help by completing the form and returning it promptly.  Questions about immunizations can be directed to the school nurse whose contact information will be included in the consent package.

To do their work, public health staff review student immunization records and enter vaccines given in school into the electronic provincial immunization registry called Panorama.  Panorama is a secure electronic health record system designed to store and record immunization related information. Confidential immunization information is only available to authorized health care workers such as members of the public health team, nurse practitioners and physicians across the province using secure networks.  To learn more about Protecting the Privacy of Your Immunization Record [click on name of document for link to electronic copy] or visit https://www.ehealthsask.ca/services/panorama/Privacy%20and%20Immunization%20Records/PHNP%2063%20-%20Privacy%20Imm%20Records%20Nov%202014.doc or call Population and Public Health at 306-766-7904.

 Please remember:

  • Immunization has saved more lives than any other health care intervention.
  • Getting your children vaccinated on time is one of the most important jobs you have as a parent. When you vaccinate your children, you protect them from serious diseases for the rest of their lives.
  • Returning the consent for immunization as quickly as you can assists tremendously in immunizing a large group of children.
  • Having your child eat a healthy breakfast and wearing a short sleeved shirt on the day of immunization are practical ways in which helps the process go more smoothly.
