Health Office

Health Office

 

We are located near the administration building. Any on-campus injury should be reported to the health office staff immediately. Please keep the health office informed of any special medical concerns. If your child must use crutches or wheelchair on campus, a physician’s order must be turned in to the health office. All students must have an up-to-date emergency card on file. Other than providing first aid, the school is unable to offer any treatment or to provide any medication unless it’s under the direction of a physician. Any required medication, including aspirin, must be kept and taken in the health office. Medication must be brought to school by the parent/guardian, not students. Students are not permitted to be in possession of any medication (either prescription or over the counter such as cough drops, Coricidin, creams, eye drops, etc.) on any school campus or at any school activity.
