Welcome back to another year at Memorial School! Here is a quick review of some policy and procedure in the Health Office to help ease any confusion in the new school year.

Communications:

If a student is seen by the nurse or nursing assistant, they will receive a “Nurse’s Pass” with a brief review of their visit. Parents/Guardians will receive a phone call in the following circumstances:

  • The student needs to be picked up from school
  • Follow-up at home is required or recommended (ie doctor visit, continued observation at home, etc)
  • Any injury resulting in a mark to the face or that which may cause parent concern at first sight
  • Further communication is needed regarding student Health Office visit

Please note that the above criteria are made with Registered Nurse assessment, observation, and judgement. If a parent would like calls for any nurse visit or in specific situations, they must specifically communicate that to the Health Office.

We are Pro-Communication. If you have any concern please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail us. We want the best for your children and we want you to feel secure in their health and safety at school.

Medications:

Every medication that is brought into school requires a “Medication Authorization” form to be signed by the student’s doctor and parent/guardian. No child may carry their own medications at the Elementary level.

Please note: COUGH DROPS count as medications and are not allowed in school unless the appropriate documentation is completed.  For the complete policy, please see the link to the left.
