Health Facilities and Services
When a child is ill, he/she is to report to the nurse.  If any child is too ill to remain in school, the parent will be notified and should arrange transportation home.
 
Accidents are to be reported by the student to a teacher.  Major emergencies are to be cared for as soon as possible by the nurse.
 
The school will not assume responsibility for treatment of accidents or injuries that occur outside of school hours.
 
A child who shows signs of illness should not be sent to school, but referred to the family physician.
 
An emergency file card is kept for each pupil.  It is most important that these cards are kept updated.  Any change of residence, parent's place of employment, or phone number should be reported to the nurse immediately.
