    Illness During School Hours 

    Leaving a Block for Illness. If you become ill during a block, ask your teacher for a hall pass and report to the Nurses’ Office (Health Services, N121). If you become ill during the passing period, report to your next block, ask your teacher for a pass, and proceed to the Nurses’ Office. If your illness is such that you cannot reach your next block, 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 your block 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 after being assessed by a school nurse it is determined you are too ill to remain in school, the nurse will call your parent/guardian and excuse you for blocks missed. If the nurse determines that you should return to your block, your parent/guardian has the authority to parentally excuse you. If a student leaves the building due to illness without checking out with the nurse or parent/guardian calling the nurse, the absence will be unexcused.

    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 have the option to return to the building to be assessed by the nurse. If you and your parent/guardian have already communicated and a decision was made that you will not return to school that day, your parent/guardian must call you out through the Attendance Office, thereby declining an assessment by a school nurse. The absence will be coded as P.
