Minor accidents which occur during the school day are treated by the classroom teacher or registered nurse. It is the responsibility of the parents to contact a doctor or take the child to the doctor's office or hospital.
In the event of serious illness or injury, the paramedics will be called immediately and the parents will be notified. Parents are responsible for payment of medical, ambulance, and/or hospital fees. If a parent cannot be reached, the school will call the emergency number provided on the enrollment form. If a parent or designated emergency contact are not available and the injury requires immediate aid, the child will be taken to the nearest hospital by paramedics. Either the school nurse, principal, or assistant principal will accompany the child while school staff continues to try locating a parent.
