First Aid /Emergency Treatment/Activity Restrictions
Nurses are available full time in all schools to provide first aid and support to students who become ill or injured during the school day. Parents will be notified if further medical care is needed, so it is important that each child's emergency card be kept up to date at all times.
The school nurse cannot assume the responsibility for injuries that did not occur at school. Parents and students are asked to refrain from requesting the nurse to treat such injuries.
If your child has an injury or illness that will inhibit them in participating in Physical Education class or any other school activity, a note is required from the doctor. The doctor’s note must include the diagnosis, the extent of limitation of activity and the period of limitation.
Parents who will be away from home for an extended period of time are encouraged to notify the school nurse in writing of alternate emergency phone numbers and temporary guardians.
