Ilness, Accidents, Allergies
The medical room is located near the office. This may be used when you are ill and waiting for a parent or guardian to pick you up. Do advise a teacher of how you are feeling so that you may be given permission to leave class, and so that your teacher knows where you are. If you fall or have an accident in class, on the field or in the gym and first aid is required, you should be accompanied by a classmate to the office, with consent from your teacher. The office staff is always ready to assist you and make you feel comfortable. In the event of a more serious accident, emergency services and your parents will be contacted immediately.
We are a peanut-aware environment so please refrain from bringing peanut products to school. All families of students with severe medical profiles are required to complete the necessary forms, which are included in the package sent home on the first day of school. Return them to the office immediately. Information on medical conditions and severe allergies will be kept on file and information shared with teachers. In the event that you use an epi-pen, you must be able to have access to one (in your binder, backpack, fanny pack, etc.) and a second one must be brought to the main office for safe-keeping.
