Students who become ill or are injured at school will be given first aid.   Whenever possible, parents will be notified when appropriate.  When the parent cannot be reached by telephone, a member of the school staff may transport the ill or injured child home, to the hospital, or to a doctor’s office.

In the case of an emergency, the student shall be transported to a hospital by ambulance or other type of transportation.  If possible, the family physician listed on the office records shall be contacted.

If a student must take prescribed medication during school hours, written authorization and instructions must be provided by the parents or legal guardians of the student.
