Health Services

 

High Point Academy | Spartanburg, SC

 

Our mission is to provide exceptional health services

to support every student’s academic success.

 

 

 

You can help by informing our nurse if your child has:

  • any chronic or acute illnesses
  • a new medication or change in medication dosage
  • been exposed to a communicable disease such as a strep throat infection, chicken pox, or conjunctivitis
  • a life-threatening or new allergy
  • a serious injury requiring hospitalization, or a diagnosed head concussion
  • an injury requiring casting, sutures, a splint, or mobility assistance of crutches or wheelchair
  • vision or hearing difficulties

The school nurse will work with a student’s physician, parent, and other school personnel to meet individual health needs during school so the child may benefit from their educational program. A child must provide a note from the doctor for activity restriction due to an injury or illness.

Please help the school nurse by:

  • Updating the phone numbers on your child’s school record so the nurse can always reach you
  • Letting us know if there is an event at home or in the family that may impact your child at the school like a military deployment, birth, or death of a family member or a beloved pet.

Please keep your child home when the following symptoms are present:

  • A temperature of 100 degrees F or higher within the past 24 hours
  • Vomiting or diarrhea occurring within the past 24 hours
  • Strep infections of any kind, untreated ringworm, conjunctivitis, or impetigo. These are all contagious infections and must be treated with medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school
  • A rash of unknown origin – this may indicate many different things and should be checked by your pediatrician
  • Untreated lice infestation
