The school nurse assesses students for illness, provides first aid, administers medications, provides vision and hearing screenings and coordinates medical eligibility for student's participation in physical education class and school sports.
Students are encouraged to see the school nurse when ill and seek first aid in the health office for all school injuries. No student should leave the school building because of an injury or ill health without first being assessed by the school nurse, receiving permission from their parent/guardian, and signing out through the attendance center.
We require a current parent/guardian phone number on file in the health office in the event we need to contact a parent/guardian for a student illness, injury or an emergency. We ask that a parent/guardian update the emergency contact form that is included in the annual January census mailing and a health information form that is mailed to every student's home each August. Completion of these forms annually will ensure that the most up-to-date information is on file in the Health Office.
