Bishop Alemany does provide a Health Office located next to the Administration Office. A student who becomes ill during the school day must go to the Administration Office and a member of the staff will contact parents or guardians. The school does not provide treatment of any kind.
At no time should the student contact their parent or guardian for pickup during the school day. All students who become ill during the day must be excused by The Attendance Office.
In the event of any accident on campus or during a school-sponsored event a written report, including date and time, will be made and filed with the Associate Bookkeeper.
Illness During The School Day:
• Students who become ill during the day outside of class must report to the Administration Office immediately.
• During class time, students must obtain written teacher permission to report to the Administration Office.
• A student may never independently call the parents and tell them to come and pick her or him up during the school day.
• If the student should leave school without the necessary written permission (off-campus pass), the student is liable to school discipline
Student Medication Policy:
State law does not permit students to carry ANY medication with them on school campus without first notifying the school. Students bringing ANY TYPE of medication to school must obtain a Request for Medication form from the Administration Office. This form must be signed and submitted to the office by the parent indicating the frequency that the medication should be taken. It is important to understand that several over-the-counter and prescription medications are detectable by the school's contraband canines. To minimize the possibility of an unnecessary "alert" parents and students are urged to comply with this medication policy.
Students bringing any type of non-prescription medication, including any pain relievers or cold medicine to campus, must obtain a Request for Medication form from the Administration Office. This form must be signed and submitted to the office by the parent indicating the frequency that the medication should be taken. Once the form has been submitted, the student will be allowed to carry the non-prescription medication on their person while on campus and be responsible for taking the proper dosages at the proper times.
All prescription medication must be provided in the original package and kept in the Administration Office where a school employee designated by the principal will allow the student to take the medication. Students must be ultimately responsible for knowing when and how much medication to take. Bishop Alemany is NOT responsible for administering proper dosages at proper times to students.
The policy regarding asthma inhalers is the same as non-prescription medication. Students who have a prescription to use an asthma inhaler will be permitted to carry it on their person after submitting the proper parent permission form to the Administration Office. The student will be personally responsible for taking the proper dosages at the proper times.
