K-12 Health Aide
HEALTH AID OFFICES:
RPCS has two Health Offices, one at the Elementary and another at the High School. One Health Aid is covering both offices. During the school year the elementary nurse office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. The high school nurse office is open from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. High School students can be seen at the elementary in the morning if it’s a emergency and the same with elementary in the afternoon.
At the beginning of each school year, the school gives out Student Health Update form that is filled out by the parent(s). This form is very useful to the nurse’s office, any changes in your child(ren)’s health is very important that we need to know. Students receive medical treatment with the consent of their parent(s) that is placed in their health record. This form is also used when your child(dren) is going off campus or on a sports trip. This form is taken by the Teacher of Coach if a student should need medical treatment when they are off campus. This has your signature, consenting for medical treatment.
We have some students that take medications and there is a form that parent(s) need to take to their child’s doctor to fill out and this gives the Health Aid the consent to give prescribed medication to your child. This form is kept in your child’s health record for the school year. K-12 Health Aid is certified to do health screenings on your child(ren) at the beginning of the school year. Hearing Screening, Vision Screening, Blood Pressure, Yaa’ screening, Height and weight check are all part of the student screenings. These screenings are reported back to the state for monitoring.

Immunization is the most important one for each child attending RPCS. Every child should be up-to-date when they enter school per State Health Department. A copy of your child’s immunization should be on record when they start school. Parent(s) can retrieve their child’s immunization at the IHS Facility.
