Illness or Injury During School

Students who become ill or injured at the beginning of a class or during a class period, should inform the teacher who will provide assistance to the student in reporting to the Health Suite. Parent(s) will be notified when deemed necessary. No student will be dismissed from school without permission of parent(s) or guardian(s) or designated emergency contact person(s). Parent(s) or guardian(s) are responsible for providing transportation for ill or injured students. When the services of an ambulance are necessary, the cost of the ambulance is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.

Students who become ill before or after school or during lunch should report directly to the Main Office.

Students who privately contact parents/guardians to leave school and leave without permission of the nurse or main office are subject to disciplinary action.

No student may leave school without first reporting to the Main Office. Students who privately contact their parents/guardians to leave school and then leave without permission of the nurse or the main office will be assigned a cut for each class missed and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

ABSENCE FROM CLASS DUE TO ILLNESS IS EXCUSED ONLY WHEN THE STUDENT HAS BEEN SEEN BY THE NURSE AND RETURNS TO CLASS WITH A PASS.
