The health office hours are 8:45AM thru 3:45PM. Closed for lunch and prep 1:30 PM through 2:30 PM.
Students are unable to carry medications on their person except inhalers. A doctor's note needs to be on file in the Health Office every year for an inhaler to be carried on their person. The Doctor can fax a note to the Health Office @ 602-449-4205.
Over the counter medications may only be given by the nurse unless we have a Doctor's order with specific dose and times. Over the counter medication forms may be filled out by a parent anytime throughout the school year for the nurse to be able to give acetaminophen, ibuprofen, antacids or Benadryl without calling a parent. We have school stock of these medications donated by PTO. Any questions please call the Health office (602) 449-4203.
PE excuses may be given with a parent note for a total of 3 days per semester, any longer a doctor's note is required.
Please remind your students to come to the Health Office to be assessed by the nurse if not feeling well. Do not have them text or call you first. By following this procedure it allows the nurse to monitor any illnesses that are prevalent in the school community. There are many ways to help your child feel better without having them go home. If they need to go home the nurse will call you. We appreciate your help with this matter.
Please remind your children the importance of eating breakfast and drinking fluids. They are allowed to carry water bottles at school with water in them.
