Illness During School Hours

If your child becomes ill at school, the nurse will notify you or the person designated on your emergency card. We do not transport children home unless it is a true emergency. 

Please notify the people you indicate on your emergency card that they have been listed for emergency care. 

Note: It is very important to notify the office of any changes in phone numbers or names of persons to be notified.

Please Be Aware 
The school nurse has the responsibility only for immediate and temporary first aid. In all emergency situations, the responsibility for care, treatment and transportation of the child will be transferred to the parent, guardian or parental designate as soon as possible. The nurse is obligated to treat only injuries that occur on school property or school buses. A dressing (bandage) applied by the family physician or parent may be reinforced if necessary, but not changed.
