Staff members will be trained in first aid and CPR. In the event of an accident or illness, every precaution will be taken to relieve and safeguard the injured or ill student. An accident report will promptly be completed by a staff member when an injury occurs that requires first aid. A copy of this form will be sent home to the parent, and a copy will be maintained on file at the school. Parents/guardians will be notified immediately when injuries are serious in nature.
Students who require medication to be given during school hours must complete the medication information on the student’s FACTS account as well as complete the form label that will be attached to the medication.
Prescription medication must be in the original pharmacy container, labeled with the student’s name, dosage, and time to be administered. Over-the-counter medication must be in its original container with the original label attached that describes dosages based upon the child’s age or weight.
All medication must be dropped off or picked up in the school office by a parent or guardian. At no time are students permitted to have medication of any kind in their possession while at school with the exception of rescue medication such as an inhaler or EpiPen. Students are expressly prohibited from administering medication to other students.
The school insurance program is a supplemental policy, not a primary one, and functions as such. If a student is injured, a claim must first be made with the parent’s primary insurance company. The school insurance policy will cover expenses not paid by the primary insurance policy, including out of pocket deductibles. Claim forms are available through the school office.
