If a student is absent due to sickness, parents need to notify the school and provide a doctor’s note that states the child’s health condition.

The school maintains a supply of common medications in case of emergency. If it is necessary for students to take medication during the school day, it is imperative for the parents to contact school nurse in order to provide them with guidance for administration, thus minimizing the risk of improper intake.
