notify the School Health Office whenever your child is being tested for
and/or diagnosed with a new medical condition. Please note that this
also includes any changes being made to a current medication or the
addition of a new medication. When medical emergencies occur at school,
the school nurse is the first to respond and any change in your child's
medical status could be vitally important. We respect your choice for
confidentiality but also want to do our best to provide the best care

School health services should not be used in place of regular medical services,
which should be taken care of at home. If
students require special medical attention, parents will be notified
and asked to furnish transportation. If a student becomes ill or
injured at school, he/she will report to the nurse or the main office. No
student should leave the school under any circumstances without
permission from the nurse or principal. Medication
of any kind cannot be given to a student without written permission
from his/her parents (special form provided by the school). Please read the School Health Information Guide for a complete description of
the district's policies.
