HORIZON HIGH SCHOOL
A Certified Registered School Nurse is available during the school day for consultation, emergencies, illness or injury. We do not make medical diagnosis or prescribe treatment. Medication is administered with parental/guardian consent only.
The health center is not a primary care facility like a doctor's office and may not be used as such because the nurse is not allowed by law to make medical diagnosis, prescribe treatment, or administer medication without a doctor's order. First aid and medical care provided by the school nurse are primarily for illness or injuries that occur during the school day. School is a healthy environment! The nurse's major responsibility is to maintain that environment and give each child the best opportunity to learn and reach his/her full potential through health education, health assessment, identification of problems, the making of appropriate referrals and follow-up, and altering the school environment to meet special health needs.
The average healthy student may never visit the school nurse or may likely make no more than 5 to 7 visits per school year. Proper use of the health center is encouraged. However, be assured acute illness and injuries will be addressed immediately.
