Going to the nurse's office:
Students should always notify their parent from the Health Room/Nurse Office if they are feeling ill and desire to go home. Failure to call from the Nurse’s Office will result in an unexcused absence. If your student texts you to request to go home, please instruct them to ask their teacher to come to the health room.
For attendance purposes, students should always sign in and out through attendance when leaving or returning to school.
Reasons the School Nurse will Recommend a student to go home:
- Tempature of 100 or flu like illness
- Signs and symptoms of strep throat
- Symptoms of Pink eye
- Witnessed or continual vomiting
Students may carry over the counter medications in their original container with a note from parent(s) or with the form below titled 'Permission to carry over the counter medications'.
