Becoming Ill at School   — Latest version as of 2013-10-21 18:50:58

If your child becomes ill while at school they will be brought to the school Nurse and parents notified. In the event of a serious injury or illness, the school will act in accordance with the Emergency Care Authorization that parents sign, giving the school permission to administer first aid, to contact the child’s physician for medical in- structions, and to take the child to the nearest hospital for necessary care. It is school policy for all accidents/injuries that occur at school or during school-sponsored activities be reported to the school Nurse and parents informed. A report will be sent home with your child indicating what the school Nurse observed, what was done to address the situation, and what follow-up is recommended. Parents who take their sick or injured child to a physician or hospital should provide the school Nurse with a written note from the physician that documents care and activity restrictions.
