Our school clinic is staffed by registered nurses and provides care for minor illnesses and injuries, and direct services for students with special needs. In addition, the clinic monitors and educates about relevant community health situations, and promotes healthy lifestyle activities to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff at all times.
Names of students and staff treated in the clinic will be recorded in a log book with time of arrival, class, a brief diagnosis and the treatment given.
All medication brought into school by students must be kept in the Clinic, including daily or regular medications. The medication should be accompanied with a note from the parents detailing dosage and time to be administered. The student will then be summoned to the Clinic to receive the medication at the correct time. Teachers are not allowed to administer medication.
Students who become sick during school hours will be assessed and treated, and if necessary given permission to be excused from class. If the sickness or injury warrants, the nurse will call the parent or guardian to arrange for pick-up, and advise if further medical treatment is recommended. Students will be cared for in the Clinic until the parent or designated driver arrives. Emergency cases may be immediately referred to appropriate clinics/hospitals and the parent contacted to meet their child at the facility.
