Basic first aid and health care that may include diabetes maintenance and other specialized healthcare procedures are available at our schools. It is the parent or guardian’s duty to arrange care for sick children promptly. A student who needs to see the School Nurse must have a pass from his/her teacher, sign the register, and will be seen by an administrator, secretary, or clinic aide when the School Nurse is not available. An up-to-date health record, which includes immunizations, screening results, and other pertinent medical data, is maintained on each student. Each parent should keep the school and the registered nurse informed yearly about any special medical information that would be important should the student have a medical emergency that needs attention. To keep information updated, a Student Health Information Form should be completed by the parent/guardian each year. All current Health Service forms may be found on the Health Service page.
It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide current telephone numbers where they or alternate adults can be reached.
