Health centre

For Lycée Claudel, student health is a priority.

  • The health area is located on the ground floor of the secondary wing.
  • It is open from Monday to Friday, from 09h45 to 15h30
  • It is open to all students, from kindergarten to high school.


The health area has several objectives that are essential to life in high school:

  • Provide first aid and proper emergency measures
  • Listen, advise, reassure and inform students, in complete confidentiality
  • Ensure personal monitoring of students’ health, in collaboration with parents and school staff
  • Organize vaccination campaigns planned by Ottawa Public Health
  • Recognize, intervene and report cases of children at risk
  • Participate in the integration of students with disabilities
  • Acting in the event of a communicable disease
  • Encourage health education

Important note

Allergies: Implementation of the recommendations of the Sabrina law at the beginning of each school year.

Asthma: Implementation of the recommendations of the Ryan Act at the beginning of each school year.

A written authorization signed by the parents and a medical prescription are required to authorize any medical treatment that must be taken at school. The health space asks parents of students with symptoms of illness to act responsibly and not to send their child to school on that day. This measure is used in particular to limit the risk of contamination.

Measures adopted at the start of the 2020 school year

The principles that have guided the development of this back-to-school protocol aim to achieve three fundamental objectives:

  1. To ensure teaching is done in a way to preserve the continuity of learning as well as pedagogical and educational follow-up within the facility;
  2. Provide an environment that promotes the well-being and physical and mental health of students;
  3. To ensure a healthy and safe environment in all circumstances.


The Lycée Claudel is committed to implementing all measures for the protection of students and staff. Our protocols have been revised to meet the recommendations of Ottawa Public Health, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education.


  • Self-Screening Form: Since the beginning of the school year the Self-Screening Form must be completed daily before arrival at the school by all students/staff/visitors. This is reinforced by the requirement to provide proof to the school that the self-test has been completed.
  • Wearing of masks: is recommended for students from the small section to the large section. It is compulsory from CP onwards (including outdoors). Each student is invited to have at least 2 masks for the day, because for safety reasons the mask must be changed when it is wet.
  • Child presenting a symptom corresponding to the Covid-19 during the school day: As a precautionary measure, your child will be separated from the other children and supervised by a staff member while waiting for your arrival. Siblings and other household members are required to isolate themselves and follow the recommendations of Ottawa Public Health.
  • Staff member with a symptom consistent with Covid-19 during the school day: The individual and household members are required to isolate themselves and follow Ottawa Public Health recommendations.
