Health Services

CGUHSD is committed to the health and safety of our students. A registered nurse is located at each school site and a nurse’s assistant rotates shifts between both schools. The Health Office provides first aid, health screenings, and education for our students. It is not an urgent care or primary care facility. Health Office staff are not allowed to prescribe, treat, or diagnose. Parents/Guardians must provide all medications for their students. All medications must be brought to the Health Office and a consent form signed. When an illness or accident occurs during school hours, basic first aid and/or emergency care is provided, and a parent/guardian is notified as soon as possible. A parent/guardian is expected to arrange for their student to leave school within one (1) hour of being notified. Further care and follow-up are the responsibility of the parent/guardian. If you think your student may be ill, check with your doctor before sending them back to school. Students who have been sent home by the Health Office due to illness should be fever and symptom free for at least 24 hours without the aid of prescribed or over-the-counter medications before returning to school.

Medication

All medications (except for cough drops) must be brought to the Health Office and a release form signed by a parent/guardian. This includes both prescriptions and over-the-counter medications. Students may carry asthma inhalers, diabetic supplies/insulin, and epinephrine injectors after the Health Office receives a consent form signed by a parent/guardian. All prescription medications must be in the original pharmacy container, labeled with the student’s name, prescription number, name of medication, dosage, and number of times a day to be administered. Non-prescription medications, including dietary supplements, must also be in the original labeled container with information from the parent/guardian as to the date(s), time(s), and amount(s) to be given. School personnel have the authority to administer medications, prescription and non-prescription, to minor students only with written permission from the parent/guardian. Other school-designated personnel may only administer daily medications and emergency medications (asthma inhalers, diabetic supplies/insulin, or epinephrine injectors). Expired medication cannot be administered.
