Agua Fria Health Center
Students who become ill or injured at school are to ask a teacher for a pass to the Health Center. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should an ill or injured student go home alone or without clearance from the healthcare professional to leave campus. Passes to leave campus will be given for illness or emergency care and a parent or guardian will be notified. No medications will be given by the healthcare professional without a signed permission slip or after 1:05 p.m.
Students, who have been absent due to any communicable disease such as measles, mumps, chicken pox, etc., must report to the Health Center for clearance by the healthcare professional before reporting to class. Students who have had a fever or exhibit any signs of a contagious disease are to remain at home until completely well and/or are released by their physician.
Any student who needs medication on a regular schedule, either prescription or over-the-counter purchase, must bring it to the healthcare professional in its original container as packaged by the manufacturer or pharmacy. Parents must also complete provided forms (on the Health Center Forms page) requesting the healthcare professional to give the medicine to the student with specific information including how often given, what dosage and the reasons for usage. If this medicine is a prescription drug, the signature of the physician is also necessary before it can be dispensed during school hours.
