Students who become ill or injured at school will be sent to the clinic. If the nature of the illness/injury is such that a student should go home, your parents will be notified. Students will not be released to anyone except a parent or another person designated on the student’s emergency card. In the event of a serious injury, school officials will notify your parents and/or the paramedics via 911. You will be taken to a hospital emergency room if such action is deemed necessary.

It is the responsibility of your parent to keep this information current.
