In-School Accidents, Illnesses or Emergencies

If your child suffers an accident or becomes ill while at school, the nurse will administer first aid and, if the matter seems to be more than routine, notify you. Since the nurse can provide first aid only, we are not equipped to keep ill youngsters in school. We will not, however, allow sick children to walk home.

Illness Precautions

If children show general signs of illness with common indicators like headache, nausea, or listlessness, we suggest you keep them home for the day. Children who have skin rashes, sores, an elevated temperature (above 100.0 degree F), a sore throat, or swollen glands may require additional medical attention. Your doctor is your best source of medical advice.

Medications

Only you or the school nurse (with written authorization from you AND the child's doctor) may dispense medication to your child in school or on school trips. We do not permit pupils to carry their own medication nor to take it without supervision, except as prescribed by district policy.

The school nurse will administer medication only if you have addressed each of the following requirements:

• Your family physician provides written authorization and specific directions.

• You provide written permission.

• The medication is in its original container.


Communicable Diseases and Conditions

Please inform our nurse of any communicable disease your child may have, such as chicken pox, strep throat, influenza, measles, rubella (German measles), mumps, scarlet fever, and fifth disease. Children with chicken pox must remain out of school for seven days from the onset of the illness and must report to the nurse before returning to the classroom.

Because ringworm, pediculosis(lice), scabies, and impetigo are communicable conditions, children who contract these conditions must stay home until treated.  Lice is a very common childhood communicable condition.  The following is a link to the American Academy of Pediatrics website regarding head lice,
