Health Services

There is a health clerk on duty each day to assist with illness or injury. She is located in the Administration Building next to the Counseling Lobby. A registered nurse is on-call for emergencies.
Illness At School
In case of illness, a student must obtain a pass from his/her teacher to go the health office. The health office must contact a parent or an individual listed on the emergency card in order for a student to leave campus due to illness.
If you are injured on campus or during a school supervised event, report the injury to your teacher, coach, or supervisor immediately.
Medical Emergency Cards
The emergency card information is needed to contact parent/guardian in case of emergency. All information requested on the card must be provided and updated as changes occur.
