Clinic and Health Guidelines
The clinic should be used for the purpose of receiving first aid treatment for injuries or for sudden illness. When the nurse is not on campus a substitute nurse will provide services on campus or the student should report to an assistant principal’s office.
When it is necessary for a student to go to the nurse, he or she must first get a pass via the student planner from his or her classroom teacher or an assistant principal. The student must be sure to sign in and out of the clinic.
When the student returns to class later in the period or the next day, the teacher must ask him or her for verification in the student planner from the clinic indicating how long the student was in the clinic and the time the student left the clinic. When it is necessary for a student to visit the nurse, he/she must first receive a pass from the teacher.
To protect all children from communicable illnesses, students infected with certain diseases are not allowed to come to school while they are contagious. Students should be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to school. Contact your campus nurse if you are unsure whether or not your child should return to school.
