• Health room facilities cannot provide for the care of the sick or injured child all day. Sick or injured children need, want and should have their parents, if possible. Working parents should be prepared to leave work to care for their children or have arrangements made for someone to care for them at home.

    Parents or guardians will be contacted to provide or arrange transportation home. In the event of severe illness or injury, an ambulance will be called to transport the student to the appropriate hospital. The ambulance fee is the responsibility of the parent or guardian and is usually covered by medical insurance.
     
     
     
    Emergency Contact Information:
    Every student must have up-to-date emergency contact information in our student information system. To keep information current, emergency contact information can be updated online or at your students' schools’ main office. Please contact your student(s) school if any of the information changes throughout the year. Correct information provided by the parent/guardian is vital, especially in an emergency.

    You can update your students' emergency contact information at any time on your parent portal account.  If you do not have an account, please click the link at the bottom of the page and create an account.  You will need a valid email address to create your parents' account. Set up your "Parent Portal" account here.

    PLEASE FILL OUT THE EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION COMPLETELY! It is imperative that the following information be provided:

    • Phone numbers where parents/guardians can be reached at home, at work, or even when out running errands. Please include all cell phone and/or email addresses when available.
    • Emergency contacts: Please provide names and phone numbers of persons who are willing and able to transport, care for, and assume responsibility for your child in case of illness or injury. This is a serious undertaking and should be arranged by mutual consent. Please be sure that the designated persons are local and available during the school day.
    • Medical conditions: Please provide information regarding medical conditions/chronic illness/diseases, all medications taken (at home and at school), all allergies, including medications, insect stings, foods, and environment.
