Policies and Procedures  

Over The Counter Medication

Please note that we no longer stock over the counter medication.  If you wish your child to have these medications you must provide written permission and a parent or guardian must bring the medication into the health room during school hours.  DOSAGE WILL FOLLOW THE PRINTED GUIDELINES ON THE BOTTLE.  Any deviation from packaging dosing guidelines will require a note from a physician.

Emergency Information
The school nurse is responsible only for the emergency care of injuries and sudden illness that occur while the student is in school.  The nurse is not available to diagnose or treat students who come to school with prior injuries or illnesses except in special cases under ongoing medical care and with the physician’s written orders.
If a student should require emergency transportation, ambulance service will transport the student to the nearest available hospital.
Students are reminded that the health room is to be used for emergency and emergent situations.  Examples of these are injuries that result from accidents in school and illnesses that develop in school. 
Students should not be requesting to leave class for treatment of piercings, tattos or for non-emergency situations that occurred over the weekend, at work or while at home.  Also, sports-related injuries that require maintenance treatment (i.e. to injured areas and medications) require a note from a physician that is co-signed by a parent. 
Students are also remined to wear appropriate footwear and to get adequate rest before coming to school.
We are aware that situations arise and need to be addressed.  However, there is an increasing trend toward using the health room for all basic self-care needs.  Addressing this problem early in the school year will help all students to have even more success this school year.
The information you provide on the EHS “Emergency Information” is essential for maintaining contact with parents and guardians.  It is very important that parents and guardians notify the school when there are any changes in home, business and cellular telephone numbers.
