Health Office Information

The school nurse's office is located near the Main Office and is open throughout the school day. The nurse is responsible for the maintenance of health records, routine health checks, parent contact concerning health problems, care of minor injuries, assisting in health teaching, and vision, hearing and scoliosis screening. Parents should contact the nurse if a child is absent from school due to a communicable disease. When a student has recovered from a communicable disease, he/she must bring a release slip to the school nurse. If it is absolutely essential that a student receive medication while under school supervi¬sion, the parent may: • come to the school and personally administer the medication, or • have a doctor complete and sign an Authorization to Administer Medication Form. The nurse will then administer the medication provided that the medication is in the original pharmacy-labeled container.
