Health Guidelines

  1. Two registered nurses are employed by the school, one at the lower school campus and one at the upper school campus. Their duties include overseeing the clinic, caring for illness and injuries during the day, and maintaining health records of all students.
  2. The clinic on each campus provides a place where care can be given to students who become ill or injured during the school day. 
  3. It is the expectation that families keep ill children at home so that infectious conditions are not spread to classmates, faculty, and staff.  This includes not sending children to school if they have had any of the following within the previous 24 hours:
    • Fever >100.0
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Excessive coughing
    • Excessive nasal drainage
  4. A student whose temperature is 100.0 degrees F or higher, who experiences vomiting or diarrhea at school, or whom the teacher feels has excessive coughing or nasal drainage will be asked to go home and should not return to school until he/she has not experienced these symptoms for 24 hours.
  5. Parents/guardians submit student medical information on the continuous enrollment form when a student is first enrolled at the school. Parents/guardians should keep the clinic updated of any changes in relevant health history, or any changes regarding medication. Emergency contacts should be someone local who can pick up a child, if needed, in the event a parent is unable to do so. 
  6. See Medication Policy for the school’s guidelines for administering medication to a student at school.
