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 an admit 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.
