Student Illness or Injury at School

Policy Title:

Policy Title: Student Illness or Injury at School
Code No. 507.2

When a student becomes ill or is injured at school, the school district will attempt to notify the student’s parents/legal guardian as soon as possible.

The school district, while not responsible for medical treatment of an ill or injured student, will have employees present administer emergency or minor first aid if possible. School personnel will also call for emergency medical services if warranted. An ill or injured child will be turned over to the care of the parents/legal guardian or qualified medical employees as quickly as possible.

It is the responsibility of the principal to file an accident report with the superintendent or designee within 24 hours after the student is injured.

Annually, parents/legal guardian is required to complete a medical emergency authorization form indicating the procedures to be followed, if possible, in an emergency involving their child. The authorization form will also include the phone numbers of the parents/legal guardian and alternative numbers to call in case of an injury or illness.

Specific requests for emergency interventions that should not be performed will require individual consideration and discussion among parents/legal guardian, physician, school and health care providers as well as the student, if indicated. A written plan specifying alternative procedures to be followed will be developed as a result of this discussion.

The superintendent or designee is responsible, in conjunction with the school nurse, to develop rules and regulations governing the procedure in the event a student should become ill or be injured at school.
