District Health Information

DISTRICT HEALTH POLICY

The policy of the Health Department confines itself entirely to disease       prevention, first aid, and emergency care.  It further states that it is not the duty of the nurse or office staff to diagnose illness, dress and treat old wounds, or administer treatment for aches or other bodily complaints. 

DO NOT SEND A CHILD TO SCHOOL TO REQUEST DIAGNOSIS OR MEDICAL TREATMENT.

District policy states that children going home early because of illness must be picked up in the school office by an adult.  No child will be permitted to walk home during the school day for safety reasons.

All contagious diseases must be reported to the Health Department at  302-8600. 

Please be proactive in performing head lice checks at home on a   regular basis.  There is limited personnel to perform regular lice checks, so it is important that you check at home.
