Procedure for student health office visits
Students will be encouraged to remain in their classrooms unless they have one of the following medical emergencies: "the 4 B's" - Bleeding, Barfing, Broken bones or Breathing issues. Other student ailments may be addressedon the students' time, during passing periods. No student will be denied medical attention. This process was implemented to reduce the number of students requesting nurse visits for unnecessary reasons. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Please contact an administrator or the school nurse if you have additional questions.
Growth and Development Film Information
Each year, students visit with the school nurse regarding “growth and development” issues and questions. For the 6th grade students, the school nurse has a discussion solely with the girls, and solely with the boys. The 7th and 8th grade students are taught in a coed setting. Seventh grade classes contain information regarding choosing sexual abstinence. Seventh graders will also receive AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) prevention education in accordance with Oklahoma law. Eighth grade classes contain information regarding prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. As a parent, you have the opportunity to request your son/daughter not be a part of the discussion.
The film that is shown to the students is available for parents to preview should they have questions as to whether or not they want to allow their son/daughter to view the film.
If you would like to preview the film, please contact our school nurse and she will arrange a private viewing for you.
If your child needs medication during school hours, required paperwork will need to be completed. A copy of the Broken Arrow medication policy can be obtained through the health office. All medications must be in the original container, have a parent note, and brought to the nurse office first thing of the morning. Students should not be self-administering medication without prior approval from the health office. Please contact school nurse for any questions or concerns.
Emergency Form (H-14)
