Emergency Care and Illness

There is a health room in each school. The school nurse or the health room aide provides emergency care for illness and injuries occurring in school while the pupil is under jurisdiction of the school.

Treatment of injuries or illnesses occurring at home is not the responsibility of the teacher or school nurse.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND A CHILD TO SCHOOL IF HE/SHE IS ILL.

If he/she has had a fever, he should remain at home until his temperature has been normal for twenty-four (24) hours.

The school should always be notified of any change in home or work telephone numbers. If an emergency situation should arise, valuable time can be lost in trying to locate a parent. It is highly recommended that you have a family physician and list his/her telephone number as well.
