Nurse

Illness

If your child becomes ill in school, he/she should tell the teacher. The teacher will send the child to the Health Office. Apache has a full-time health assistant and a part-time nurse. It is your responsibility to have the child picked up promptly. Children may be released only to parents and to those individuals named on the Emergency Information Form. School rules will not allow children to wait in front of the school building nor allow them to walk home alone. When your child is ill, do not send him/her to school. Children must be fever free without fever-reducing medicine for 24 hours prior to returning to school.

Students are not allowed to bring any medication to school without seeing the health room for the proper consent form. If the nurse is required to give medications, the doctor authorizing the school nurse to administer the medication must fill out an authorization form.
