Students are taught skills needed to promote safety and prevent unintentional injuries. However, injuries requiring first aid can happen in classrooms, on playgrounds, or on athletic fields. The school nurse will assess and administer first aid when necessary.

No student is allowed to leave the building for reason of injury or illness without first reporting to the nurse.

If necessary the school nurse will:

  • Contact the parent or guardian or designated emergency contact.
  • Call 911 if a student requires more than first aid.  If transported, the student’s family will be financially responsible for the care given.


Excuses from Participation

Occasionally, a child may need to be excused from participation in a class due to an injury or medical reason.
