A full-time nurse is on duty during school days. If a student is hurt or feeling ill at school, he/she should request a clinic pass from his/her teacher.  The nurse will evaluate the student and determine the necessary course of action. All students who become ill, must be dismissed through the nurse’s officeParents are expected to pick up their child within one hour if the nurse indicates it is necessary.

Students must be free of fever, vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.


If a student is to take prescription medication at school, a Prescription Meds Authorization Form must be completed and signed by the prescribing doctor.  The form and medication must be delivered to the nurse by a parent or guardian.  Medicine will not be accepted from students.  All medicines must be in the original container and match the doctor’s order exactly.  Medication cannot be returned to the student to take home.

A student may be administered non-prescription medication by the nurse if a Non Prescription Medication Authorization form is signed by the parent and on file with the nurse.
