Attention Parent Guardian (Click here to view new immunization requirements)
The nurse office is located in the Health Suite. The nurse is on duty during school hours. Before reporting to the nurse office, except in case of emergency, the student needs to be excused by an instructor, counselor or administrator.
The nurse is available for first aid, illness and injury treatment. In case of illness, the nurse will decide if it is necessary for the student to be sent to the doctor or sent home. If so, the nurse will make the necessary arrangements. Students are not permitted to leave school without the permission of the nurse or an administrator.
The nurse is an important team member at Jeff Tech. All students are encouraged to visit the nurse to discuss health issues. The goal of the school nurse is to help students obtain a quality education.
Health Screenings and Services Provided:
Height and Weight – Yearly for all students including BMI results
Vision Screening – Yearly for all students, may be repeated upon request by parent and/or teacher
Hearing screening – Students in Grade 11 and upon request by parent and/or teacher for students in other grades.
Physical Exams—Students in Grade 11. If a private physical exam is desired forms are available from the school nurse.
All medications need to be brought to school in the pharmacy-labeled container or original manufacturer’s package by the parent/guardian and kept in the health office. If this is not possible, the pharmacy-labeled container or original manufacturer’s package needs to be placed in a sealed envelope with a note signed by the parent/guardian stating the amount of medication being sent to school. The only exception is emergency use medications such as an inhaler , epipen, and diabetic supplies. For emergency medication students must have a doctor’s order giving permission “to carry medication on self and self administer as needed.”
All medications require a form with written parental consent and a doctor’s signature. The medication consent form is available in the nurse office.
The school nurse does have Epipen and Benadryl for emergency use and Ibuprofen (Motrin), Acetaminophen (Tylenol), Antacid (Tums), and Cough Drops available for all students on an as needed basis. A standing order from the school doctor is kept on file for these medications to be given as directed. Written parent permission is required. The Student Health History form with parental permission must be returned prior to medication administration at school.
The nurse office is now on the Jeff Tech website under the “Department” heading and “Health Information” sub heading: http://www.jefftech.us/site/Default.aspx?PageID=275
