Health Office

  • Welcome!

    Should students feel ill at any time during school, they must notify his/her teacher of the condition. The teacher will provide a pass to go to the office. The office will determine what should be done. No medicine will be dispensed without an "Administration of Medication at School" form filled out and signed by both the doctor and parent. Emergency first aid will be given when needed. If you are injured, notify the teacher immediately, so that necessary help can be given. In the event that an ambulance must be called for a student, the parents must assume the financial responsibility for the cost.
