Health Care

The School Nurse (2-3 days/week) and the Health Assistant (daily) provide services that include:

  • handling emergencies
  • vision and hearing screening
  • health and development screening
  • scoliosis screening

Do not send student to school with diarrhea, vomiting, fever, or excessive coughing. Students must be free of symptoms for 24 hours to return to school.

Students who are out ill for five days or more must have a medical doctor's note to return to school.

A medical doctor’s note is required of all students with casts, crutches, body braces, ace bandages, and stitches. Hospitalizations must have a release to return to school from a medical doctor. Limitations at school (such as limited participation in PE) must be accompanied by a medical doctor’s note.

No medication is allowed at school without written medical doctor's authorizations. This includes cough drops, herbal medication, and over-the-counter products. See the Health Office for the form the medical doctor must complete. A medical doctor's note is required for any P.E. excuse needed for more than one day.

Notify the Health Office of any new changes in student's health.
