Immunizations & School Nurse

A student who is ill should remain at home.  Students who become ill 

or are injured at school should notify their teacher and go directly to 

Nurse's office.  First-aid will be provided and a parent will be

contacted if necessary. The nurse, depending on the severity of the

case, may call for additional medical assistance. All students are

required to complete and return an Emergency Contact form within

the first week of school in order to contact a parent or guardian in

case of accident or serious illness.  Goddard has an R.N. assigned five

days a week. The main function of the school nurse is to provide

health services when needed at school.  Also, the nurse screens

students for visual, audio, dental or growth problems and sends

referral notes to parents/guardians if further evaluation is

recommended.  The nurse, however, does not diagnose or treat

illness. School personnel are prohibited from dispensing medicine,

including aspirin.  Students are discouraged not to bring medication

 to school.

If medication must be taken while at school, a medication form 

(available in the nurse's office) should be filled out and the medicine

left at the nurse's office. Students must have proof of current 

immunizations for school attendance.  Shot records must be on file

with the school nurse before students can register and attend

 classes.
