Dismissal for Illness is made through the Health Office,  students should not call/text parents prior to going to the Health Office, this could result in disciplinary actions. No student is allowed to leave without Parent/Guardian permission.

Students who need inhaler or Epi-Pen may carry them with Doctor’s order in place in the Health Office. It is also advised that an extra inhaler or Epi-Pen be kept in the Health Office for emergencies.

All medications given must have Parent/Guardian permission. Doctor’s orders are required to be on file for prescription medications.

Orange  Cards

Student athletes must have an Orange card signed by the nurse before each sports season they plan to participate in, in order to try out and play. Students must pick up cleared Orange cards from the Health office prior to tryouts. Orange cards provide permission and medical clearance for sports participation. A current valid physical must be on file in the nurse’s office in order for the orange card to be signed. The physical must be no older than 13 months. Orange cards must be completed by Aug. 20th in order to be eligible for Fall sports.

Pre-Participation Head Injury Form

Massachusetts state law requires that a Pre- Participation Head Injury form be completed by a parent prior to the start of each sports season, even if the student has never been diagnosed with a previous concussion. This form must be on file in order for the orange card to be cleared. 

Any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call.
