We are super lucky at Sinagua Middle School to Have Nurse Avery Brain. Please stop by and say hello!
The school nurse is on duty during the school day from 7:30 AM till 3:00 PM. No student is to leave the campus due to illness without first being excused by the nurse or an administrator.
Students with school-related injuries or emergencies should report to the nurse's office immediately. If the nurse is unavailable, an administrator will be notified. Students with medical conditions (diabetes, heart, respiratory, etc.) or students on regularly prescribed medications should make sure the nurse is aware of the condition and report any changes or updates immediately to the nurse. If you become ill while at school or develop a skin or eye irritation, you should request a pass from your teacher and report to the nurse. The nurse will notify your parents/ guardian if you need to leave school. All students must have emergency telephone numbers on file with the nurse and report any emergency telephone number changes immediately to the nurse's office.
For the protection of all, students may not bring MEDICINE (including Tylenol) to school!
When medications are necessary during school hours, the school nurse may cooperate according to the following requirements:
- Tylenol (non-aspirin) and other over-the-counter medications (non-prescription)
may be administered with a parent-signed district consent form on file in the nurse's office.
- Other Medication must be brought in by a parent and kept in the nurse's office in the original container.
- All prescription medications (including inhalers) may be administered with a written order from a physician stating the name of the medication, the dosage and time the medication is to be taken. (This information should be obtained at the time the medication is prescribed.) A parent-signed district consent form must be on file in the nurse's office. Medications must be brought in by a parent and kept in the nurse's office in the original, pharmacy-labeled container.
FUSD does not provide medical insurance coverage for school accidents. Parents/guardians are responsible for all medical bills if their child is hurt during school activities and athletics. Student accident/health insurance plans are offered to help pay for any medical bills and information is available at the school office.
A variety of coverage options are available. The Student Health Care and High Option 24-hour Accident plans are recommended for those students with no other insurance because these plans provide the greatest coverage when injuries occur. If you do not have other health coverage, student insurance also may be used to pay those eligible charges not covered by other insurance. If your parents have any questions, they should call Myers-Stevens & Toohey, Inc., at (800) 827-4695 or (949) 348-0656. Bilingual representatives are available for parents who need assistance in Spanish.
