Health Office - (303) 347-6096

The AHS health office is located in the student services department. Students may visit with concerns due to illness, injury or health needs related to a medical condition. Students may rest in health office for ten minutes. If after ten minutes they are still feeling ill and unable to return to class, parents/ guardians will be notified in order to arrange a dismissal for their student.

Please utilize the health resources available to you and your student by clicking on the link below. From there you may download medication authorization forms, health care action plans, medication self-carrying contracts and guidelines. You can also access information regarding illness guidelines, Colorado immunization requirements, food allergy guidelines and nutrition.

Students are allowed to self carry a daily dose of medication, both prescriptive and non-prescriptive. Please refer to the LPS policy JLCD-R below for details surrounding the self carrying of medications.

High school students may carry and self-administer one day’s dose of prescription or nonprescription medication. Any student self-administering medication inappropriately or in violation of this regulation of Board or school policy shall be counseled and the parent or guardian notified. Students may also be subject to discipline, including suspension and/or expulsion. Medications shall be confiscated and self-administration privileges shall be revoked if the student shares medication with others.

If your student will be self carrying their medication, it is recommended that parents/guardians provide backup medications to be stored in the health office for emergencies.
