We have a school nurse on our campus each day to assist students when they become injured or ill and to do periodic health screening. Our nurse also checks immunizations on new students to make sure that they comply with Arizona state law.
Although our nurse is a valuable health resource to students at school, if parents have a general health question or suspect your child is ill, you should call your family physician.
If your child becomes ill or injured at school, the nurse will attempt to contact you to pick up the child. It is very important that the school is furnished with current emergency information including two phone numbers where parents or emergency contacts can be reached. If you change address, phone, place of employment, or emergency contact, please notify the school office.
Except in cases of emergency, students should have a pass from their teacher or playground supervisor when coming to the nurse.
Following an illness, your child should remain free of temperature for a 24 hours period before returning to school. Please do not send an ill child to school. We encourage parents to notify the school of any major or significant change in health that occurs with your child.
If a student needs to take medication at school, the medicine must be brought to the nurse’s office. All medications must be in their original prescription bottles with instructions for use. Parent permission must accompany the medicine.
Each year the Prescott Unified School District arranges with an insurance company to offer low-cost accident insurance to students. Information will be sent home about the insurance at the beginning of the year. This is a service to parents and is not required. We do encourage that parents have insurance coverage of your choice on your children.
