Welcome to the DHS Clinic webpage! The clinic is available to service both the students and staff.
We open at 7:10am and close at 3:10pm during the school year. Our clinic is designed to assure a safe, healthy environment that is conducive to learning and to provide professional care for those who become ill or injured while on campus.
ALL medications (prescription and over-the-counter) must be furnished by the parent/guardian in the original container with the proper written authorization. Please see the student health forms link or pick up a form in the clinic. The nurses will administer all medications (prescription and/or over-the-counter) with the exception of inhalers or Epi-pens that a student may need to carry with him/her for emergencies. Even those student’s self-carrying inhalers and Epi-pens must complete proper written authorization.
When returning to school after an absence, the student must give a note from the parent/guardian explaining the absence to the attendance clerk. Students with a contagious disease requiring a doctor release to return to school should report to the clinic before going to class. Returning to school sooner than a doctor’s release note, may result in being sent home.
Any student needing assistance getting to classes, due to mobility problems must bring a note from the doctor describing the disability and modifications needed. Five minute passes and elevator passes may be issued as needed. Both will have an expiration date that is usually provided by the doctor. The student should have this pass with him/her and available for inspection at all times. Elevator keys are to be issued every morning and dropped off every day before leaving campus. A lost elevator key will cost $25 paid to the clinic or treasurer.
