Welcome to Jackson's Health Office!
Student Illness or Injury during the School Day
Students are sent to the clinic if they are injured or appear ill. Health office staff will attend to the student’s complaint. This may include providing first aid, asking the student questions about how he/she feels, taking a temperature, making observations, talking to the teacher, and contacting the school nurse. If a student has a temperature of 100.4 F or higher and/or illness related vomiting or diarrhea, the parent/guardian will be called and the student will be sent home. Other symptoms that influences the decision to send the student home include general appearance and functioning in the classroom. After a period of observation a decision will be made to do one of the following: (1) Attempt to notify the parent/guardian; (2) Allow the student to rest in the health office for a brief period. The student is to be fever-free without fever reducing medication before returning to school. Parents will also be notified of injuries that appear to be serious in nature or require medical attention.
