My child has becomes ill at school, what happens now?

Posted by:

A student who becomes ill during school hours is taken to the nurse's office. If it becomes necessary to send your child home because of illness, you will be notified and requested to provide transportation. Please be sure to complete the emergency contact card provided at the beginning of the school year and update the information on the card when any changes occur. The school nurse makes decisions about whether or not to call parents on a case-by-case basis. However, the nurse always calls in the following situations: significant injury, major accident, temperature of 100 degrees or higher, presence of head lice and/or nits, changes or deficiencies in screenings, frequent visits to the nurse, immunization needs, abnormal weight loss or gain, self-inflicted wounds, emotional problems and student's request.
