The health offices at our Great Hearts Academies are staffed by Health Assistants and Registered Nurses. In the event that the school health professional is not present, trained personnel will be delegated to administer medications and respond to medical emergencies.
Parents are required to submit an Emergency Contact Card with current health history with the school office annually. If your child is known to have asthma, severe food allergy, diabetes, seizure disorder, or any other condition that may require further management, please contact the school nurse to schedule a meeting before school begins.
- Parents should notify the school nurse of any changes that arise throughout the school year regarding changes of the child’s health status such as ; a new diagnosis; new medications given at home; surgery or hospitalizations; fractures or injuries; or communicable diseases in the child or immediate family.
- The state requires certain communicable diseases to be reported by the school to provide community assistance if necessary.
