• The clinic is available to service both the students and staff. The health services program 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 at school.

    All medications (prescription and over-the-counter) must be furnished by the parent/guardian in the original container with the proper written authorization. The nurses will administer all medications with the exception of inhalers or epi-pens that a student may need to carry with him/her for emergencies. Students are asked to take daily medications between classes. If the student has trouble getting to the clinic and then to the next class without being tardy, he/she may be given a pass to leave class 2-3 minutes early or be 2-3 minutes late to the next class.

    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.

    Any student needing assistance getting to classes, due to mobility problems must bring a note from the parent/guardian describing the disability and modifications needed.  Five minute passes and elevator passes may be issued as needed. The 5-minute pass will have an expiration date. The student should have this pass with him/her and available for inspection at all times.
