The Sts. Joseph and John School clinic is staffed with a school nurse and an health aide. The school nurse is available in the clinic for screenings and special situations. The school health aide staffs the clinic daily between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. If an accident occurs, first aid will be administered and parents will be notified. If a child becomes too ill to remain in school, parents will be contacted. For this reason, it is critical that the school has a telephone number where a parent or guardian can be reached. An alternate emergency contact person must also be listed. Please do not send children back to school until they have fully recovered from an illness and are able to go outdoors for recess.
State law prohibits us from administering any kind of medication to any student without a written request from the Physician stating the name of the drug, dosage, and time(s) to be given (this includes aspirin). Also, signed permission from the parent/guardian must accompany all medication before it may be administered. Medications taken in school must be taken in the presence of the school Health Aid. All medications, prescription or non-prescription, such as, Tylenol, Advil, Dimetapp, etc. must be in the original container.
All students must be current on their immunizations to be admitted to school. Please see the immunization form found in the school registration packet. Or the immunization form may be downloaded from this site or obtained in the school office.
Please try to schedule appointments for dental or medical care outside of school hours. If you are unable to do so, we will excuse the student during the school day. A handwritten signed note must be sent to the school on the day of the appointment. The parent must pick up the student in the school office.
