The school nurse's office is open from 7:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. when school is in session.
The nurse works together with the Bassett Healthcare school-based health center
to coordinate care for students, and provides care for students in accidental or unexpected medical situations. The school nurse also serves as the district's Foster Care Point of Contact.
If a student is ill or injured, the nurse will call parents to have the student picked up, or will call an ambulance in the case of an emergency.
Student medications are kept in the nurse's office, and administered by the nurse or other school employee, unless other arrangements are made. More information is in the Medications
link at left.
Students who need to be excused from physical education class for medical reasons
should submit a note from their physician to the nurse’s office.
