Nurse's Office

Nurse's Office

 Welcome to Highview Sixth Grade Center School Nurse's Office. Please feel free to contact the school nurse with any health related issues that your child/student may have during the school year.

Emergency Care

If your child is injured or becomes ill at school, the school will notify you. Therefore, it is imperative that we know:

1. Where to reach you (home, business, and relative/neighbor’s telephone).

2. The name, address, and telephone number of your family doctor.

At the beginning of each school year, each student should bring home a Health & Emergency Information form. Please complete this form and return it to your child’s teacher immediately. Parents are urged to make every effort to keep the information recorded on the emergency cards current. If necessary, parents should contact the school nurse to update these forms during the school year.
