Everything you need to know about our school clinic is right here!
A few things that you should know:
- Our clinic can only provide basic care (minor boo boo’s).
- We are not medical professionals and cannot provide any health care beyond bandaids and ice. Anytime a student visits the clinic, a yellow copy describing the visit and what was done, will be sent home.
- If there are specific issues (red eyes, rash, fever, cough, etc ) seen in the clinic, we will attach an additional note for details.
- The most important thing our clinic wants to provide is care for your child while at school, should a need arise. Anything beyond basic care, we will contact you.
- It is VERY IMPORTANT we have a current DAYTIME PHONE NUMBER contact. If a student needs to be picked up from school, we will contact you or any emergency contact name and number we have on school file. We are not allowed to send a sick student home on the bus or after school program.
We will always do our best to provide each student with care and attention when needed during the school day!
