Illness and Injury at School

At the time of enrollment, please notify the school 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.  Children are never diagnosed or treated for illness or injury, but are given first aide as permitted by law.  If a child has a fever or displays other symptoms of illness, the parent or other person listed on the enrollment form as “emergency contact” will be notified.  The child should then be picked up as soon as possible.

Medication

Over-the-counter medication cannot be administered by the school without a physician’s statement.  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 form must be left in the office.

Health Clerk

A Health Clerk is on duty on a part-time basis.  The Health Clerk is here to help in case of sickness or an accident. 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 by the teacher and/or parent as time permits.  You will be notified if it is found that your child is in need of outside medical attention.

School Insurance

School insurance is available to all students.  Packets are sent home at the beginning of the school year.  Purchase of the insurance is optional.
