The District shall provide the services of a medical consultant who shall render medical and administrative consultive services for personnel responsible for school health and athletics.
Procedures for Emergency at School
School personnel shall give only emergency care to students who become ill or injured on school property, buses, or while under school supervision.
Each year parents shall supply information indicating where the student is to be taken in case of an emergency; the name, address, and phone number of a neighbor to be contacted in case the parent is not available; and any allergies or diseases the student might have.
Student Illness or Injury
In case of illness or injury, the parent or guardian will be contacted and asked to call for the student or provide the transportation.
