Student Health Services
There is a full time credentialed school nurse on duty from 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for assistance with health problems and first aid. Students who become ill or injured on campus are required to report to the health office for care and arrangements for school departure.
In keeping with the district goal of optimum physical and mental health for all students, the school nurse strives to strengthen the educational process through improvement of the health status and knowledge of children and youth. The school nurse shares in the responsibility of helping each student reach full educational growth and maximum potential in physical, mental, and social growth. Nurses provide a health services program for the assessment, evaluation, maintenance, and improvement of the health of pupils and school personnel.
Medication to be administered during the school day requires a Physician Recommendations for Medication form be completed and medication must be in the original bottle and delivered to the School Nurse by the parent. Over the counter Tylenol and Ibuprofen are available at school with completion of the Health Information Consent form contained in the registration packets. Students with Asthma should have a SDUSD Asthma Action Plan completed. Students with a severe allergy requiring an Epipen need to have a School Anaphylaxis Action Plan and Agreement for Student to Carry forms completed.
ALL NEW AND INCOMING STUDENTS MUST SHOW PROOF OF IMMUNIZATION BEFORE REGISTRATION CAN BE COMPLETED.
