If your student is seen in the Nurses Health Office, during a school day, they will receive a treatment sheet. A treatment sheet reflecting your students’ complaint and care will be filed in the Nurses office and a yellow copy will be sent home with the student.
If your child has a fever 100 degree’s or over; have vomited; have experienced diarrhea; have a rash that may be communicable; have a questionable sprain/strain/ or break or require stitches; have a head injury requiring medical attention, or are so ill that they will not be able to make it through an academic day, you will be notified and asked to come an get your student.
We cannot diagnose illnesses or rashes, and may request that you see your doctor in order to confirm or rule out communicable illnesses.
If diagnosed with Strep throat or Pink eye, a student must receive three doses of prescribed medication before returning to school.
Although the school nurse coverage isn’t full time in the district, the identified health aid in each building is trained to assess medical situations, and is able to reach the School nurse via pager if needed outside of assigned hours. Each building also has a CORE team of individuals who have been trained in CPR, First aide and the use of AED (Automatic External Defibrillators). This team can be called in case of an emergency and will be the first responders prior to an ambulance arriving.
If your child is experiencing medical problems please call the school nurse as we are there to assist you and your student.
