Our health room is supported by Kirsten Owens, BVSD Nurse and staffed by Eliana Aguirre, a trained paraeducator and/or by a parent volunteers who are trained in first aid. When a student is not feeling well at school, the health room staff will determine the extent of injury or illness and decide if the parent should be called. Except in cases involving emergency medical procedures, the primary responsibility for transporting injured or ill students will be with the student’s parents or those individuals listed on the Student Infinite Campus record. When a parent is called to pick up a student due to illness, please make every attempt to do this within 30 minutes, as there is limited space in the health room to care for ill students.
Medications of any kind, including over-the-counter medications, will be administered only with the written order of a physician. It is the parent’s responsibility to obtain from the school’s health room the Parent’s Request for Giving Medicine at School, Release Agreement and Physician’s Signed Order form and to provide the medication in a container appropriately labeled by a pharmacy. Whenever possible, parents are encouraged to have the student’s medication given at times other than school hours.
If you have specific health concerns or health care plans for your student(s), please contact Eliana Aguirre,Healthroom Paraeducator or call her at 720-561-5508.
