Valencia High School does not have a school nurse on staff. A Health Clerk is on campus for a limited time each day. However,the school cannot send any student home without the parents' permission, or that of another adult so designated by the parents on the Emergency Data Card. STUDENTS CANNOT BE DRIVEN HOME BY ANOTHER STUDENT WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF THE PARENTS OF BOTH THE STUDENTS INVOLVED. If it is necessary for a student to take medication during school hours, contact the Valencia Health Clerk for the procedure to follow.IT IS ILLEGAL FOR A STUDENT TO CARRY MEDICATION ON HIS/HER PERSON WHEN ON CAMPUS. If an exclusion has been written by the physician, have the student bring the written statement to the Health Office.
If the student is having frequent absences from P.E. because of a physical problem, consult a physician. Physician's requests at the end of grading periods are not acceptable to excuse students for prior absences.
IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT THE EMERGENCY CARD BE KEPT UPDATED.
