Clinic hours are Monday- Friday
8:30am - 4:30pm
Students will be admitted to the clinic only in an emergency or when sent to the clinic by a teacher. Approval by the school nurse must be given before any ill student is excused to go home. If it is necessary for a student to go home, the nurse will inform the parent and the student will be released from school by signing out through the attendance office. If the procedure is not followed and the student leaves without properly checking out, the student will be given an unexcused absence for classes missed.
The nurse keeps records on all students as prescribed by State Law. The nurse gives vision, hearing, and Acanthosis testing as well as height and weight checks. District required health education and prevention programs are administered by the nurse. The nurse will also work with Health Education and Welfare Assistance programs (Free Lunch and Reduced Price Lunch), and assist with other issues that may arise that prove a health barrier to education.
