Emergency care will be administered to those students who become ill or have accidents during school hours. In case of major illness or accident, the following procedures will be followed:
At the beginning of each school year, parents are asked to complete the Student Emergency Information Form. The form should be filled in accurately and the school should be notified of any changes in procedure, address or telephone numbers that occur during the school year. The parent or guardian must sign this emergency form. It is very important that some responsible person can be reached at all times, should there be an emergency with a student.
Each school year, the following health screenings are provided for each student:
*Usually given as DTP or DTaP or DT or Td
**Usually given as MMR
These requirements allow for medical reasons and religious beliefs. If your child is exempt from immunizations. He/she may be removed from school during an outbreak.

Parents should confer with the child`s physician to arrange medication time intervals to avoid school hours whenever possible. No medication, other than those on the list sent home at the beginning of each school year, may be administered without written authorization from the physician and the parent/guardian.
When medication absolutely must be taken during school hours, the parent or guardian must submit a written request, signed by the physician and parent, to the school nurse in order for their child to take any medication. The appropriate form and related letter may be found in the nurse`s office.
