Chronic Illness Information
Students with chronic illness conditions (defined by ARS 140-901 as “a pupil who is capable of profiting from academic instruction but is unable attend school due to illness, disease, accident or other health conditions, who has been examined by a competent medical doctor and who is certified by that doctor as being unable to attend regular classes for a period of not less than three school months or a pupil who is unable to attend regular classes for intermittent periods of time totaling three school months during a school year”) should obtain chronic illness request forms from the nurse’s office at the beginning of the each school year. Examples of chronic illnesses include severe asthma, uncontrolled diabetes, mononucleosis, cardiac problems, debilitating migraines, etc.
Dispensing of Medications
All medications must be kept in the nurse’s office; this includes inhalers. Students are not allowed to carry medications while on campus. A signed medication permission form must be on file in the health office for all prescribed and over-the-counter medications.
A signed over-the-counter permission form permits the school nurse to give students Tylenol, cold medications, cough drops, allergy medication, and antacids. Any student with undocumented medications on their person will be subject to disciplinary action.
Medical records showing dates of immunizations must be completed and on file for each student. An emergency card must also be completed and signed by both the parent/guardian and student. This card will be kept on file in the front office.
Students who are ill need to be seen by Nurse Charlotte prior to being released from school. A parent or emergency contact person will be contacted and asked to please come and pick them up. For the well-being and safety of our students, we do not release ill students to go home alone.
Nurse Charlotte is available to assist students from 9:20 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Her telephone number is 602.449.2303.
