Boulder High School has a full-time nurse and health room para assisting with the health needs of our students. The clinic is intended for the use of students with serious or unexpected illnesses or injuries. If a student becomes ill and needs to leave school, they must check out with the school nurse or the attendance office first.
School personnel are not allowed to dispense medication without completion of the required BVSD form. In order for a student to carry medications with them during the school hours while on school property the student must obtain a form from the school nurse and return it with the required signatures.
In the event of a medical emergency, parental instructions as indicated during Annual Data Update (ADU) will be followed. If this information is not updated or fully completed during registration, and parents/guardians nor emergency contacts can be reached, and the paramedics must be called, all decisions as to treatments, hospital etc., will be made by the paramedics. It is very important to update contact information annually.
For additional information regarding health room policies, please visit the BHS Health Room Website or contact our health room staff and/or school nurse. The BVSD Health Services Website and BVSD Policy JLC, JLCC, JLCD, and JLCE, also have information about immunizations, medications, health forms and other district health policies.
