Health and Safety
St. John Mary has the services of a nurse’s station with a certified nurse. If students are feeling sick they need to go to the sick room with a pass from the teacher unless of course it is an emergency situation. One student may accompany a sick student if necessary. However, it is not necessary that the accompanying student remain as it often hinders the service to have too many people in the sick room at any one time. The responsibility of the school nurse is to give frst aid for emergencies, treat minor injuries, and provide nursing care for illnesses occurring at school. Students and parents are to ensure that the nurse has an update if the student is taking any special medication or if he/she has any allergies. A fully equipped f rst aid kit is kept in each classroom and taken on all f eld trips for minor cuts and bruises. Parents please do not send a student to the nurse’s station for a problem which should be taken care of at home. The school nurse does not diagnose illness. Diagnosis is left to the student’s physician.
