Health Center Policies
Medications: All medications, prescriptions and over-the-counter, are to be set up for administration by nursing staff. Medications may be administered by staff who have been trained in dispensing procedures.
Participation: In the absence of a physician’s note, the nurse on duty will determine whether a student is to remain in the Health Center for illness or be excused from a specific class or sport. If a student has been excused from class for the day, he or she will not be permitted to participate in afternoon activities.
Communication: Whenever necessary, parents will be notified by a telephone call or a written note to keep them informed of medical problems.
