Student Illness

If a child becomes ill at school, the parents/guardians are contacted.They are responsible for arranging to take their child home.Parents/guardians who cannot be reached at home should provide an alternate phone number.

An emergency card (white, 2-sided, 5 ½ by 8 ½) is sent home each fall with each child for prompt completion and return.These should be fully completed because it provides much needed information to the school nurse.It is especially important to provide information regarding any physical/medical conditions your child has, any medications he/she takes, any allergies he/she may have, who your physician is, and who your emergency contacts are.If a family moves from the school district, the child’s health record will be forwarded when a request for records from the new district is received.
