Nursing Services

An APS School Nurse is at Osuna part of each school week.  Osuna’s Health Assistant is on duty in the Health Office each day during school hours.  The School Nurse will perform mandatory health screenings.  Results will be sent home with the student.  Please notify the Health Office in writing if you prefer that your student NOT receive a screening. 

Immunizations

In accordance with state law, all students are required to have up-to-date immunizations.  If you have questions regarding the status of your child's health record, please call the school.  Students will not be allowed to enter school without current immunizations.

Injury/Illness

Should your child become injured or ill at school, the following steps will be taken:

  1. Parents or guardians will be contacted immediately when a child needs to be sent home due to illness or injury.

  2. Students who are ill will not be permitted to walk home.

  3. If a student needs emergency care and a parent or guardian cannot be reached, the child will be transported to UNMH for medical attention.

Please make sure we always have your most current home, cell, work, and emergency telephone numbers
If your child has a fever, or is vomiting in the morning, please keep him/her at home, and call the attendance line (296-4811 option 5) to report the absence.

Medication Policy

Prescription medications may be administered at school, BUT only with a signed APS Physician’s Order Form.  Over the counter medications require a signed APS Parental Authorization form.  Parents may obtain these forms in the Health Office.  Prescription containers must have a pharmacy label with the name of the drug, strength, dosage, student’s name, and time of administration.  All medications must be kept locked in the Health Office and parents have to pick up remaining medication at the end of the treatment.
