General Clinic Rules
The school maintains a health clinic located in the Administration Office, available for emergencies only. Students who are too ill to stay in class are too ill to stay in school. Parents will be notified to pick up their children. It is important that the Emergency and Health Cards reflect up-to-date information on health problems, addresses, phone numbers, and emergency contacts. No medication will be administered or dispensed to any student without the specific authorization by the Health Director of the Broward County Health Unit. Forms may be obtained at the school's front desk. Students are prohibited from visiting the clinic between classes.
Dispensing of Medications
If a student needs to take prescription or non-prescription medication during the school day, he/she must bring the medication and the Medical Authorization Form to the clinic. The physician must complete each side (or both pages) before medication is accepted and permission granted. Forms are available in the main office or by clicking the following Medical Authorization Form for a printable copy.
