The school nurse is available on a daily basis for assessment and counseling regarding health issues. It is important that students come during non-academic times, except in an emergency.
Students are required to have a pass from the teacher of the period in which they are visiting the nurse.
Students who become ill during the school day must see the nurse for dismissal. The nurse will make arrangements with a parent or emergency contact for dismissal. Students then need to checkout with SAO (Student Affairs Office) before the student leaves school.
All accidents occurring at school must be reported to the teacher and the nurse before leaving school.
|The Nurse's Office is open Monday - Friday 7:30 - 2:45, and by appointment.
The Nurse Practitioner is available Monday, Wednesday and Friday from
7:30 - 1:30 pm. Please enroll in the School-Based Health Center!
Eagle's Nest School-Based Health Center services
- Our mission is to promote quality health care to our youth by providing services and programs in school that assure that they are both physically and emotionally prepared to take full advantage of their educational opportunities and experience a positive, healthy lifestyle.
- The School-Based Health Center, which supplements the traditional school nurse services, is located in the Nurse's Office and staffed by an administrative assistant. The nurse practitioner, who sees patients three days per week, is also available by phone if circumstances warrant.
Medications at school
All medication, prescription and non-prescription alike, must be kept in the Student Health Center. Written parent permission is required for the nurse or her staff to administer medications. State law requires a doctor's order but we have orders from our school doctor for routine over the counter medications. If an unusual amount is needed, please obtain an order from your doctor.

Medications must be sent to school in the original bottle.
For prescription medications, the prescription bottle may serve as a doctor's order. If a student is on long-term prescription medication that is to be administered by the Health Center staff, the prescribing doctor must complete a Permission to Administer Medication Form.
