    ILLNESS DURING SCHOOL HOURS 

    Leaving Class for Illness. If you become ill during class, ask your teacher for a hall pass, and report to the Nurses’ Office (Health Services, N100). If you become ill during the passing period, report to your next class, ask your teacher for a pass, and proceed to the Nurses’ Office. If your illness is such that you cannot reach your next class, you should report to the nearest adult or classroom for assistance. If you arrive at the Nurses’ Office without a valid pass, you will be sent to class for a pass, if you are able. If you are physically unable to obtain a pass (seriously injured, difficulty breathing, etc.) you will be seen without first obtaining a pass.

    Checking Out of School for Illness. If you are ill and the nurse decides to send you home, the nurse will call your parent/guardian, issue you a Leave Early Absence Form, and excuse you for classes missed. If a student leaves the building due to illness without checking out with the nurse, the absence will be unexcused and will count toward NC.

    Juniors and seniors: If you are off campus during your scheduled lunch period, including your unscheduled period immediately following lunch, you are still considered “in school” and must return to the building and report to the nurse if you feel ill. If you fail to return and check out with the nurse, regardless of the reason, your absence will be marked unexcused and will count toward NC.
