THE HEALTH OFFICE is where sick or injured students can be triaged, assessed, treated and or referred for further treatment. It is staffed with a State Department of Education licensed school nurse or trained health assistant.

STUDENTS VISITING THE HEALTH OFFICE DURING THE SCHOOL DAY - All efforts to return a student to class will be made if deemed appropriate by the health office staff. A student may be considered a candidate for exclusion from school or from the bus at the discretion of the health office staff. Reasons for exclusion may include but are not limited to vomiting, diarrhea, fever of 100 or greater, and/or significant injury not responding to treatment.

Children may not return to school until they are free from symptoms for 24 hours without the aid of symptom reducing medications such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Do not send students to school that are sick and not feeling well, not only for the welfare of your student but also of other students and staff. If a student is experiences Covid19-like symptoms he/she will need to have a Negative Covid19 test turned into the health office or quarantine for 14 days prior to returning to school.

In the case of a serious illness or accident, every effort will be made to contact the parent or guardian. If the student’s condition appears to be an emergency, 911 services will be called. Parents and/or guardians are responsible for notifying the school with any updates to the emergency card if there are any changes during the school year. This includes medical updates, change in phone numbers or emergency contacts.
