Check-Out Policy: The clinic is available for illnesses or injuries that occur during school hours. Students must have a valid pass before coming to the clinic. If a student is too ill to remain at school, a parent/guardian will be contacted to pick his/her child up. The clinic must get parent/guardian permission before releasing any student to anyone other than the parent/guardian unless it is an emergency.
Health Management Plans: If it has been indicated that a student has a current medical problem, a completed health management plan should be on file in the clinic. These forms help provide the medical information needed to best care for your child while at school and they must be updated each school year. These forms are available in the clinic.
