It is very important for the administration and school nurses to have available a variety of emergency contact information in the event that your child should experience an emergency at school. A hospital preference and a physician's contact number should be available for such emergency situations. All emergency contact people and telephone numbers (work, cells and beepers) should be updated periodically and available for a quick response. If your child has a life threatening allergy and needs emergency medication at school, please refer to medication policy/procedures. Particular questions related to school emergencies should be directed to the nurse based at your child's building.
