The school nurse is a great health resource and has an office in the main office. When the nurse is not available students can get limited services from our secretaries.
Students that are required to take medication, must have the approved district form signed by a parent/guardian and health provider. Those with asthma, severe allergies requiring an EpiPen, diabetes, seizures etc., must have a health plan specific to the condition. These completed forms will be kept in the main office and distributed to teaching staff. The school can only dispense medication supplied by parents, with the completed district paperwork.
