HEALTH ROOM RULES
Nurse: Judy Williamson RN

If a student becomes ill or injured at school, they must visit the school nurse for evaluation.  The nurse will determine if it is necessary to call the parent for early dismissal. Students are not permitted to use their cell phones to be picked up without visiting the nurse first.

If a student requires specific accommodations due to a medical condition, parent must submit documentation from the doctor.  If they currently have a Service Agreement (504) parent must submit a copy of the 504 to the school.

The school nurse is permitted to administer Tylenol (650mg) for headaches and Ibuprofen (400mg) for menstrual cramps only. If a student requires Tylenol or Ibuprofen for any other reason the doctor must complete the Med-1 and parent sign the form. Students requiring any other medication in school must have a Med-1 form completed by the doctor and signed by the parent. This includes inhalers, Epi-pens and allergy medication.

Students are permitted to carry their own inhalers and Epi-pens in school. The medication form must be on file in Health Room.

Students will obtain a pass from their teacher to visit the nurse, unless it is an emergency.  Teachers will be issued nurse passes (Meh-13). Teachers will complete the upper portion of the Meh-13 documenting students name, time student was permitted to leave class, and sign their name.
The nurse will complete the recommendation portion of the Meh-13, the time the student was discharged from the health room, and signature
