A student who becomes ill during the school day should report to the nurse. All students reporting to the nurse must have passes. If there is a necessity to go home, the nurse will inform the parent of this. If a student leaves without permission, the student will be considered truant. When the nurse is not available, students who are ill should report to the office. The nurse is permitted to administer medication that is sent to her by the parent. The medication policy which is distributed on the first day of each school year should be followed. Loitering in the nurse’s room is prohibited.
