Paula Turk, Lincoln Health Aide | paula.turk@prescottschools.com

Lincoln School has a health aide on campus during school hours to assist your child if injuries or illness occur at school. The health aide also does vision and hearing screening on all students, and is responsible for making sure that all students entering school are up to date on immunizations.

If your child should become ill or seriously injured at school, the health aide will attempt to contact you to pick up your child. It is very important that you keep the school furnished with current emergency information, including two phone numbers where parent or responsible adult can be reached. During the school year, if you move or change phone numbers, please notify the school office.

Although good attendance is vital, students should remain at home when their condition may jeopardize the health of others or their own well-being. Some signs of illness are:

– fever
– nausea or vomiting
– runny nose
– red, watery eyes
– sore throat
– rash
– sneezing and coughing

If a student needs to take medicine at school, it must be brought to the health aide’s office. Students should never bring medication to school without her knowledge.

All medications must be brought in the original containers with instructions for use. Written parent permission must accompany the medicine.

BY LAW, WE CANNOT DISPENSE MEDICATION UNLESS IT IS IN THE ORIGINAL LABELED CONTAINER.
