• Students in Grade 11 must have a physical submitted during the school year. Please submit by December 20, 2019.

• Students entering Grade 12 are required to have at least one dose of the Meningococcal Vaccination. Please send any updated vaccination records to the nurse’s office.

Our goal as school nurses is to help students incorporate healthy behaviors and achieve optimal health status, which enhances their ability to learn. Our nursing interventions encourage student responsibility and independence in becoming healthy adults.

The Health Room is located on the first floor next to the main office (A-4) and is staffed during school days from 7:55 am – 2:55 pm. The office is open to all students and staff of PAHS. All students must have a pass for admission to the nurse’s office. Exceptions are made in emergent situations.

Please complete the online Emergency Information form including any changes regarding address, telephone number, medical conditions or medication changes and submit on the PASD Website under the Annual Health Information Update in Skyward. This form must be completed at the beginning of every school year.

All students leaving the building due to illness MUST be dismissed through the nurse’s office. When a student is sent home an Illness Dismissal and Readmittance Form is sent with them to be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the Attendance Office. Students are to sign out with the Front Desk prior to leaving the building. Transportation is the responsibility of a parent/guardian.

When it is necessary for medication to be given to a student during school hours excluding standing order medication, a medication consent form (PH-17/a) must be completed and returned to the school nurse by the parent/guardian. Medication must be delivered to the school nurse in its original container along with a doctor’s written prescription. Students are not permitted to carry medication in school with the exception of inhalers and epi-pens which are required to have parental and physician approval.
