Student Health InformationSpecial Health PlansSection 504 PlansIn 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 InformationHome/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.

ConcussionsA concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly.
