Health Office: General Information

1.      Health Office Visit: Except in an emergency, students are not admitted to the Health Office without a pass, which indicates that they reported to class and are absent from the classroom with the teacher's permission.  Students may also come to the health office during non class periods. Students will use the health office ipad or their phone with a QR code to login to be seen in the health office.  Students will be given a pass upon leaving to either return to class or leave campus if they are going home.

2.      Medication: Any student who must take medication (prescription and/or non-prescription) during school hours is required to contact the Health Office.  There is a Diocese of Orange medication request form that must be completed and signed by a doctor for the health office to give medication during school hours.  All medications must be kept in the Health Office  and will be in a locked medication cart. The school does not furnish medication to the students per (Diocesan school regulation #6013). The Health Services staff will contact the parents of those students who are not taking required medications. Medications shall not be furnished to a student by school personnel.  This applies to both OTC drugs, such as Tylenol, Aspirin, Advil, Midol, etc., and to prescription medications.  Students may carry the medications as long as it remains in the container it was purchased in to the health office along with the medication request form and a note indicating when the medication needs to be taken. EpiPen's and Inhalers can be carried by students.  All student medications should have a Medication Request form on file in the health office. A separate form is required for each medication. 

3.     Medical Conditions:  In order to meet the specific health needs of students, it is very important that the Health Office be informed in writing of medical conditions/problems which may affect the student's school performance.  There is a Disability Verification form that should be completed and signed by a doctor if there are specific learning accommodations that need to be managed. All medical conditions should be entered into Healthy Roster in the Important Medical Information section under Student/Athlete Details and updated as needed.

4.      Chronic Conditions Requiring Medications:  All students with a chronic health condition requiring daily medication/treatment should provide the Health office with an individualized health maintenance kit to be used in the case of a disaster (3-5 day supply).
