Health Office

We have a full time school nurse aide and a half-time registered nurse that we share with the middle and high schools. It is critical that you designate another adult for us to contact in case of an emergency or when we are unable to reach you. In the event of an injury, we will administer minimal first aid. When phone numbers change, please let us know. If the injury is serious, we will request assistance from an ambulance service and travel with the ambulance to the hospital. We also attempt to notify parents of minor injuries to let you make decisions about bumps and cuts, which may require stitches or attention from a physician.

Staff Members

All students must comply with the Colorado Immunization Law. By law, students must meet the immunization requirements for DTP, Polio, HIB, MMR, hepatitis B, and chickenpox. Contact the school nurse (384-5860) for help and information concerning these requirements.

Medication at School

Medicine will be given only with the parent, guardian, and a physician’s written permission. Medicine must be in an individual pharmacy labeled bottle. The label must include the doctor’s name, student’s name, name and dosage of medicine and directions for giving the medication. Medication permission forms are available in the nurse’s office.
