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 for 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.
