Assessment and Treatment in School

Accident and emergency treatment is limited to First Aid by school personnel at the time of the accident or injury. Further treatment is a parental responsibility.

 

If the student is complaining of illness, the nurse will perform an assessment. If the nurse deems it necessary, the student is allowed to rest in the Health Office for as long as 30 minutes. If the student has a fever, is vomiting or not feeling better after cot rest, a parent (or other emergency contact) is contacted to take the student home.

 

Students will be sent home if they present with symptoms of highly contagious conditions (such as pinkeye, head lice, ringworm or unidentified rash, scabies, whooping cough, respiratory flu or strep throat). Students may also be sent home if they present with a disruptive cough.
