School Medical Care
The school’s role in the medical care of your child is summarized below:
In case a student becomes ill in school or any other emergency occurs which would require the child to be returned to the home, the parent will be contacted promptly. Each parent should carefully complete the Emergency Health form provided by the school, including the phone number of a relative or friend who could be contacted in case the school is unable to contact the parent.
First aid treatment is the only treatment given to the student. In case of accidents in the school, the child is given first aid by the health personnel/teacher. In cases requiring more than first aid treatment, the parents will be called to take the child to the family doctor. If we are unable to contact the parents (or your alternate emergency contact) the nurse will make arrangements to have the child transported to the nearest most appropriate medical facility.
