Health Services

  • Nurse Robbin White Our office personnel will treat minor cuts and abrasions at school. Please check with your child when he/she returns home sporting a new Band-Aid or excitedly tells you of his /her incident on the playground.  In the event of an illness or head injury, every effort will be made to notify you that your child received care in the health room.
     
    If your child is too ill to remain at school a parent/guardian will be contacted to pick up the student. Students may not return to school until they have been fever (100 degrees or higher), vomit, and/or diarrhea free for 24 hours without medication to treat it.  Read more about the district infectious disease policy

    Life-Threatening Health Conditions

    Prior to attendance at school, each child with a life-threatening health condition must present a medication or treatment order and health plan addressing the condition signed by a healthcare provider and the parent/guardian. A life-threatening health condition means a condition that will put the child in danger of death during the school day if a medication or health plan is not in place.
