Wheaton North Health Services
The Wheaton North Health Office assists students with immediate health problems and counsels students to develop good health habits.
All medications taken during the school day (even over the counter medication) must follow district policy and a completed district medication permission form is required.
The school nurses work closely with all members of the student personal service team, which includes counselors, psychologists, deans, and social workers.
A student may be sent to the health office on a teacher's pass in case of sudden illness or injury. A student is not allowed to text or call a parent via personal cell phone during the school day to arrange dismissal. If the nurse feels the student is to be sent home, a parent, or another authorized emergency contact will be consulted and transportation options discussed. Students leaving school because of illness or personal emergencies must check out through the health office or they will receive an unexcused absence. A parent's request to excuse the absence after the student leaves during the school day can not be honored.
A student with an injury that requires limited participation in physical education class would need a doctor to complete the Modified PE Form.
Please make sure the school is aware of any emergency phone number changes throughout the school year. A student who is ill and absent from school due to a communicable disease must see the nurse before returning to classes. Some communicable diseases require a doctor's release when the student returns to school.
