South River High School is staffed by a full-time Registered Nurse and two Health Assistants. Health assistants are qualified to give medication and administer first aid as needed to our students. As a general rule, the health room should be used for the following reasons:
- medication administration
- special procedures based on students’ individual medical needs
- illnesses which include symptoms such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, severe headache
- rashes or other skin conditions
For Health Room Information, please contact the School Nurse, Cara Jean Nielsen, RN at firstname.lastname@example.org

Medication: My child needs to take Medication at School. What procedures do I need to follow? Students are permitted to take medication at school ONLY when it is deemed absolutely necessary and only under the supervision of school health staff. A form titled, Parent’s Request to Administer Medication at School must be on file for each medication. No medication can be accepted by health services personnel or allowed to be self-administered under the supervision of health staff without the receipt of the appropriate medication authorization form completed by the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) and authorized prescriber in its entirety without deletion or alteration. For the safety of students, school health services reserves the right to refuse to accept, administer, or supervise self-administration of any medication if these procedures are not followed.
