From the Nurse's Office
- A registered nurse is on campus from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to administer medication, provide emergency care to students who sustain injuries, and to care for students who become ill at school until their parents arrange transportation home.
- Emergency care is limited to first aid, defined as immediate and temporary care given in order to prevent further injury until emergency medical care arrives. The parent or guardian is responsible for any follow-up care.
- The office is closed except for emergencies from 12:45 to 1:15 p.m. for lunch and 2:00 to 2:30 p.m. so the nurse may confer with teachers, parents, pupils, medical personnel, and others relative to health problems and education, return phone calls, and complete daily charting. The nurse will see emergencies at this time.
- Other services of the school nurse include administering vision and hearing tests, health screenings, drug screenings, keeping cumulative health records, and assuring compliance with Arizona’s immunization requirements.

- It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to furnish the school with the month, date and year of each immunization for your child.
- If your child is missing or delinquent in receiving the required immunizations, your child may be excluded from school until the needed immunizations are received and documented proof is presented to the school nurse.

- The nurse is not permitted to provide any over-the-counter medication to students. This includes acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
- Notre Dame Preparatory High School encourages parents and physicians to minimize the prescribing of medication to be taken during the school day.
- Medication should be given before and after school hours when possible, and dispensed by the nurse only when the student's health may be jeopardized without it, and when needed to maintain/promote the health of the student so that learning is enhanced.
