Student Health Procedures

Health Office

Each school site is provided with a Health Technician who divides his/her time between five schools. On average, a Health Technician is present one day. Therefore, our office staff assumes the responsibilities of caring for ill and injured students. We are here for emergency care only. Should a student fall sick during the day, he/she must go home to recuperate, as our facilities are not adequate to provide proper care for long periods at a time. Any student injured during the school day is brought to our office, evaluated and provided with first aid measures. If the student is unable to return to school activities, it may be necessary to contact a parent to decide if the child should be seen by the family physician or be taken home to rest. When a student comes to the office, it is the student's responsibility to inform an adult in the office that he/she is present.

 

Medication

Any student needing to have medication throughout the school day must have a medical release form completed by a doctor and parent/guardian. Medications are locked up and dispensed according to doctor's orders. This includes prescription and over the counter medications. Students are responsible for coming to the office at the correct time to take their medicine. If your child has special medical needs, please contact the school to discuss the details of your child's particular situation.
