Illness & Injury Guidelines

Illness & Injury

The school health program is no substitute for the health care which parents should provide for children. Health room nurses are responsible for injury and illness occurring in school or on the way to and from school only. Initial evaluation and first aid treatment are provided by the nurse. Parents will be contacted regarding significant illness or injury and recommendations will be made for further treatment. 

Concussion / Head Injury

Each school has a concussion management team to help students who sustain a concussion. Contact your school nurse for assistance.
