About Health Services (Nurses' Office)
The ETHS District 202 Health Services Department (located in the Nurses' Office, N121) is staffed with a team of school nurses who provide health services to students and their families that promote physical and emotional health. The Nurses' Office is staffed with nurses certified in both CPR/AED and First Aid.

Primary services provided include:
- Evaluate students who become ill during the school day or who have emotional health complaints
- First aid
- Medication administration
- Referral to ETHS Health Center
- Referral to community resources
- Emotional health counseling and support
- Height, weight, vision and hearing screening

- Sports physical verification for student athletes
The Health Services Department is responsible for developing and supervising health procedures that comply with Illinois School Code, regulations established by the Illinois Department of Public Health, and District 202 policies. Records are maintained concerning physical examinations, medical excuses, accidents during the school day, and visits to the Nurses' Office. Parents/guardians should inform the Health Services Department of any student health issues, such as short-term injuries, physical disabilities, allergies, chronic diseases, and medications. ETHS has several AEDs (automated external defibrillators) located in the school and around campus.
Current parent/guardian and emergency contact information must be up to date with the school. Although this information is provided at the time of registration, please remember to update your contact information as well as the information for your child's emergency contact as needed throughout the school year.
