Health Room

Students who are ill should remain at home. If a student becomes ill or is injured at school, he/she may get a pass from the teacher, whose class will be missed, to report to the health room. If the health aide or nurse determines that the student needs further treatment or should be sent home, the nurse or nurse aide will contact parents. Only the staff of the Health Office will determine if the student should go home and will advise the main office. Students are never excused to go home unless the school contacts a parent or guardian and the student is picked up and signed out by a parent or guardian. In case of serious illness or injury and when the school is unable to reach a parent or guardian, 911 will be called.

Students are not to call home on their own to a family member to be taken home. The Health Office personnel must first see the student. Students may go to the Health Office at any time, but they must first seek adult permission, or obtain a pass from their teacher.

UNM sponsors a School Based Health Center here at school in the nurse’s office. They can see students if they are not feeling well, have personal issues, or just want a sport physical. They are at school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. A nurse practitioner, a social worker, a child psychiatrist and a clinical assistant staff the clinic. The SBHC is able to provide a variety of services including immunizations, sport physicals, check-up, and counseling. Parents must register their child and give permission for their child to be seen. Parents are encouraged and welcome to come with their child for an appointment.
