No Child Without is a program sponsored by the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation. Children aged 4 to 14 with a medical condition, allergy or special need that should be communicated to emergency medical personnel in an emergency are provided with the 24-hour protection of the MedicAlert emergency information services at no cost. If your child qualifies, please obtain a brochure on the program from the school office.

The Vancouver Island Health Authority provides a number of bulletins on health-related matters for schools.
