With the exception of an emergency, all students who come to the office for an illness must have a pass from the class they are missing. Students are not allowed to come in during the passing period. Each student is asked to sign in and then will see the nurse or health aide. The student will be assessed to determine appropriate action to be taken. If the student is released to go home, the health services staff must speak with a parent/guardian or an emergency contact who has been designated by the parent.
