MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

Accidents

Immediately report all accidents to the school Nurse, regardless of the severity of the injury.

Illnesses

If a student becomes ill in school, the Nurse will contact a parent/guardian and issue a medical excuse to return home.

Extended Absence Due to Illness

If a student is going to be absent from school for three days or more because of illness, contact the school Nurse at 609.806.4273 and report the nature of the illness. If a student has been out due to a contagious disease, operation, or serious illness, he/she must see the Nurse upon his/her return to school.

Medication

The school Nurse administers medication to students only when the medicine has been prescribed by a physician and is accompanied by written permission from the parent/guardian. Non-prescriptive medication is not to be taken in school without written permission from home and may be taken only under the supervision of the school Nurse.
