Health Office » Procedures


If a student feels ill during school hours, s/he must obtain a pass from the classroom teacher to report to the school health office (or the main office if the health office is closed). CLASSROOM PASSES MAY BE WAIVED ONLY IN CASES OF SEVERE EMERGENCIES. Students without a pass will be redirected back to the classroom.


After assessment and/or treatment, the school nurse or other designated personnel will contact the parent, if necessary. Under no circumstances should students text/call parents from their cell phones to be picked up or released early from school. Similarly, no students should leave the school premises and have a parent call after the fact if they are feeling ill. 


ALL reports of illness/injury should be reported to the health office (or main office if the health office is closed).
