A nurse is assigned to LHS on a daily basis while students are in school. If the nurse is absent, an on-call nurse is available to handle emergencies.
The nurse provides first aid services and carries out doctors' orders regarding medications and treatment. Students obtain a "referral to nurse" slip in order to make a visit to the nurse's office.
A completed and signed Health Assessment form (see Forms below) alerts the nurse, and through her the teachers, of any health problems that could affect a student's safety or ability to succeed in the classroom. It also provides permission to obtain emergency medical/dental care in the event a parent cannot be contacted.
