Health & Wellness
2023 UPDATE: Please read the following:
We take student well-being very seriously. If a student is suffering from a medical condition (mental or physical), please read the following emergency guidelines:
If an accident or sudden serious illness occurs at school, every effort will be made to contact parents, but immediate treatment of the injured student is our first concern.
If the situation is serious enough to require outside treatment, 119 will be contacted immediately and an ambulance will transport the student to the nearest hospital. ICS personnel will accompany the student. Parents/Guardians will be notified of the hospital location and should immediately go to the hospital, where the ICS staff member will be waiting to meet them.
Parents/Guardians are responsible for hospital/ambulance expenses and the money will be reimbursed when parents/guardians submit the hospital receipts and medical certificates to ICS. The school is also not liable for payment of medical expenses incurred as a result of a pre-existing medical condition of a student.
A NOTE REGARDING MEDICATIONS & IMMUNIZATIONS:
Medication can be brought to school if it is essential to the health of the student. The medicine with accompanying written statement must be clearly marked with the student’s name, correct dosage, and parent’s signature.
Please check your child’s health records to be sure all immunizations are up to date (e.g. polio, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, rubella, mumps, and TB skin test). ICS requires documentation of these immunizations. It will be recorded on the student’s school medical history form and kept inthe nurse’s office. Student immunization records must be up to date in order for a student to be allowed to come to school.
