Introduction

The nurse's office at AIS-First Ave is open daily from 8:30 A.M. to 2 P.M. providing first aid for injuries occurring at school and to screen students who declare themselves to be ill. Students who wish to see the nurse must have a pass from the classroom teacher except in cases of emergency.

 

The school nurse will excuse and exclude from school students who display the following: (1) symptoms of a communicable disease; (2) symptoms of an illness which cause an inability to function in the classroom; (3) injuries that have occurred at school. If a student does not meet the above criteria and requests to be sent home, the student's parent or guardian will be called by the nurse.
