From the School Handbook:
The nurse is usually in her office during the entire school day. If it is necessary to see the nurse FIRST REPORT TO CLASS to get a PASS to visit the nurse. DO NOT go to the nurse DURING PASSING PERIODS, unless it is an emergency. ONLY EMERGENCIES may be brought to the nurse without a pass. All medication to be administered at school must have a physician's written order and is to be kept in the nurse’s office. If the Nurse Office is closed, report to the Main Office.

If a student must take prescription drugs and/or over the counter medications at school, he/she must bring them to the nurse in Room 90 with instructions from the doctor or a note from the parents, giving the student permission to take medicine at school. The nurse will plan a schedule for the student to get the medication with the least disruption of class time.
All medications prescribed or not, must be labeled with the student’s name, the strength of the medication, the amount to be taken, how often, and for how long.
Students may never bring or carry drugs or medications, in any form, to school.
Under no circumstances may a student ever give another student a drug or take a drug from another student.
When students come to school sick they expose everyone with whom they come in contact to the illness. Sometimes students leave home ill and report to the nurse's office as soon as they get to school. The parents are called to come get them, especially in the case of a contagious disease.
Students should not come to school sick. Parents should keep and use a thermometer at home to determine if a fever exists. Students who have a fever of over 100 degrees should be kept at home at least 24 hours.
If a student is out of school for three (3) days or more, the parents should contact the nurse at 337-6276 or 0611-721182 or the SAO.
