The school district, while not responsible for medical treatment of an ill or injured student, will have employees present administer emergency or minor first aid if possible. An ill or injured child will be turned over to the care of the parents or qualified medical employees as quickly as possible.

It is the responsibility of the principal to file an accident report with the superintendent or designee within twenty-four hours after the student is injured.

Annually, parents or guardian are required to complete a medical emergency authorization form indicating the procedures to be followed, if possible, in an emergency involving their child. The authorization form will also include the phone numbers of the parents and alternative numbers to call in case of an injury or illness.

The superintendent or designee is responsible, in conjunction with the health services manager, to develop rules and regulations governing the procedure in the event a student should become ill or be injured at school.
