First Aid, Illness, Emergency Care
The school health offices are staffed full time to provide care to students who become injured or ill while at school. If further treatment is required or a student needs to go home, parents will be contacted.
Students who are ill or injured must be picked up in a timely manner and cannot stay in the health office all day.
Parents must have arrangements in place to take their child home or have a designated person who is available to do so. In the event of an emergency, 911 will be called, and student will be transported to the hospital via ambulance.
Injuries that do not occur at school are not the responsibility of the school nurse. By law, school nurses are not permitted to diagnose illnesses or injuries, so parents are asked to refrain from sending their child to the health office for diagnosis or treatment of these injuries.
