Nurses are available full time in all schools to provide first aid and support to students who become ill or injured during the school day. Parents are encouraged to address medical concerns or injuries that occur after school hours with their primary care physician.
If an injury or illness occurs during school hours requiring additional medical care or evaluation, a parent or guardian will be contacted. It is important that each child's emergency card be kept up to date at all times.
Parents who will be away from home for an extended period of time are encouraged to notify the school nurse in writing of alternate emergency phone numbers and temporary guardians. It is strongly suggested that a parental authorization statement of consent for treatment should be prepared and notarized for those responsible for the student's care. A copy of this authorization should be provided for the school.
