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
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.
