FACTS ABOUT YOUR SCHOOOL HEALTH CLINIC
Health personnel follow protocols, procedures, and policies developed and/or approved by the Director of Health Services, School Board, Superintendent or his designee. Health Assistants and designated staff are supervised, on health related issues, by a Registered Nurse (RN) and the Director of Health Services.
In order to assist your child with health related needs, you should inform health personnel of: specific needs, limitations, restrictions or areas of concern indicated by the doctor, dentist, licensed healthcare facility, or parent, all immunizations, boosters, or restrictions obtained from licensed health care providers, changes in eye exams and any restriction limitations or accommodations needed, medications (prescription and non-prescription) routinely taken at home or school.
For medications taken at school, the appropriate forms must be completed, the medication provided by the parent, guardian, or person responsible for student’s care, absences from school. For your child’s safety, call the school office daily toreport absences. If your child is absent three (3) or more days, please all or send a note to the school health clinic before the first class, and a phone number and emergency number where parent, guardian, or person responsible for student’s care can be reached should be on file in the clinic. The health personnel should be immediately notified of changes.
If you have questions or concerns related to your child’s health, contact the school health clinic.
