The Health Office is staffed all student days by the Certified School Nurse or Registered Nurse Assistant. The Registered Nurse Assistant contacts parents of sick or injured children, administers prescribed medications, provides first aid in emergencies and assists with health screenings and record keeping. In addition to the aforementioned, the Certified School Nurse provides health assessments, consultation and referral, health counseling and health education, prepares individual health plans, delegates and supervises medication administration, monitors student health status, and assists with health prevention and health promotion activities.
Emergency Contact Information
At the beginning of every school year you will receive an Emergency Information Sheet to be completed and returned to school. It is important that the information be current, be filled out completely and be returned immediately It is necessary that we have your phone numbers (home, work, and cell) as well as the phone numbers of two additional friends, neighbors, or family members that will assume temporary care of your child if you cannot be reached. In case of an emergency when parents cannot be reached, the parent’s signature authorizes the school to call physicians listed on the sheet and to make arrangements for emergency medical care if needed.
Please be sure the emergency contacts you list know that the school may contact them and are willing to pick your child up from school when you are unavailable. It also helps if your emergency contacts are easily reached by phone when you are not.
Please notify the office immediately of any changes or additions that need to be made on your child’s emergency information during the school year.
