Please notify the school when you enroll your child if your child has a health condition or a physical condition that might pose a problem in any way or that might need special attention during the school day.
Over-the-counter medications cannot be administered by the school or kept in the possession of students. Students who need to take prescribed medication must have the appropriate form signed by the physician and parent before the medication can be brought to school. The medication and authorization/information form must be left in the school Health Office.
Nurse and Health Clerk
The nurse and health clerk are on duty on a part-time basis. They are here to help in case of sickness or an accident. School nurses and health clerks do not diagnose illnesses.
Routine Health Checks
Health Services provides screening for vision and hearing to all students in Kindergarten, 2nd and 5th grades. Other students are screened upon request, as time permits. You will be notified if it is found that your child is in need of outside medical attention.
Accidents or Emergencies
If your child has an accident or becomes ill at school, you will be contacted by use of your child's emergency card. Your child should be picked up as soon as possible, for both his/her protection as well as that of other students.
