If an accident occurs in school, the nurse will administer first aid, notify the parent, and call emergency help if necessary. If a child becomes ill at school, the school nurse will ensure supervision of the student until a parent or designated emergency person can be contacted to take the student home. Parents are responsible for providing the school nurse with these emergency names and telephone numbers each school year.
Appointment: If your child has an appointment during school hours, please send a note stating the place of appointment, time to be excused and who will be picked up the child. No child will be released from school unless signed out by a parent, guardian or parental designee.
