Health Office

The school nurse is available for routine care during the school day. Students who are ill or injured during the school day are sent to the nurse’s office. Students may be administered first aid, may be sent home, or in extreme emergencies may be transported to a hospital. Parents are notified if a serious injury or illness occurs. A written report is kept of all accidents and health visits.


The responsibility for the health of each child is primarily that of the parent/guardian. The school nurse will strive to protect and improve the health of each child in cooperation with parents, making use of community resources and educational materials.
