Student Health Information
Special Health Plans
Section 504 Plans
In order to be served under Section 504, the student: 1) must have an impairment; 2) that is physical or mental; 3) which limits a major life activity; 4) which limitation must be substantial; 5) such that services and/or accommodations must be made in the school setting in order for the student to receive an appropriate education.
This may take the form of needing to provide accommodations in order to allow the student to access programs or services that other students without disabilities have access to. This may also take the form of providing services and/or accommodations for the student in order to meet that student’s individual needs as adequately as the needs of students without disabilities are met.
For further information, please contact your child’s school Section 504 Coordinator.
Home Hospital Information
Home/hospital services are provided to a student when a licensed medical physician determines that the student will be, or is anticipated due to a medical condition to be out of school for a minimum of two consecutive weeks of school (10 days) or more or on an ongoing intermittent basis. The goal of home/hospital instruction is to afford the student experiences equivalent to those afforded to other students at the same grade level and are designed to enable the student to return to the classroom. Thus, the substance or content of the instruction, generally academic, is to enable the student to remain synchronized with the other students in his or her class. For more information please contact your child’s school and ask to speak to the nurse or the home/hospital liaison.
If the student has a fever of 100 degrees or greater, has a heavy cough, is vomiting or has diarrhea, the student should not be sent to school. The student may be sent to school after the fever and/or above symptoms have been resolved for 24 hours. Facilities for the care of sick students are limited and must be kept available for emergencies or sudden illness during the school day. Parents may be contacted and requested to pick up their child if a student displays any of the above symptoms or symptoms of a communicable disease.
