Emergency Transportation

The school nurse evaluates students with injuries and illnesses. 

If a student's injury or illness warrants further treatment and/or a student is too ill to participate in school activities, the nurse will organize transport home. Parents or guardians are notified first when possible; if they cannot be reached , the persons designated as the student's emergency contacts will be contacted. If a student drove to school verbal permission may be obtained from the students' parents or guardians for the student to drive home unless the school nurse believes this to be unsafe.

In the event that a student has a medical emergency, every effort will be made to contact a parent or guardian. If no contact can be made, the nurse will act in the best interests of the student in seeking immediate emergency evaluation and care.
