The Health Office is located in the West Wing in room 23. We are staffed by a health paraeducator and have a school nurse on-call. If a student is feeling ill they must receive permission from their classroom teacher before leaving class and then report to the Health Office. The Health Office personnel will attempt to contact parents/guardians/emergency contacts if it is necessary for the student to be sent home. If the student can remain in school they will be given approximately 20 minutes to rest and return to class. Students on any medication (including non-prescription medications) should be taking them in the Health Office with a parent’s written authorization. We do not provide non-prescription medications for students. Please refer to the Student Handbook for more Health Office information.
