An attempt will be made to contact the parent/guardian if a student has an accident, a temperature, is feeling ill, or needs to remain longer than 15 minutes. The parent/guardian may then request the student be released from school, picked up as soon as possible or sent back to class. Any student with a known medical problem or who needs to take some form of medication at school should notify the Health Technician and bring a current statement from his/her physician. The medication will be kept locked in the Health Technician’s Office and used under supervision. Medications, including over the counter drugs, cannot be brought to school and kept in lockers, purses, or pockets. Failure to follow these procedures could result in disciplinary action.
NOTE: If a student becomes ill during the school day, he/she must sign out through the Health Office before going home.
