Emergency Illnesses at School

Emergency Illnesses at School

A Student Health Information Form will be sent home with your child at the beginning of each school year. It is very important that you complete and return this form immediately. Completing this form gives you an opportunity to list any medical conditions, allergies, medications, and concerns you may have. Also included is emergency information for the clinic staff to use in order to contact you or a person you designate if consultation is required regarding your child.

Illness at school is evaluated by the health service staff in the clinic area. A child who demonstrates the following symptoms should be sent home from school:

  1. Fever of 100 degrees or more.
  2. Suspected contagious condition or disease.
  3. Vomiting or diarrhea.
  4. Severe stomachache, headache, or earache.
  5. Too ill to function in the classroom.
