General Health Office Rules & Guidelines
New Mexico law requires all students to be currently immunized or in the process before entry into school. Proof of vaccination or exemption will be required at registration.
The school nurse should be informed of any health concern, medical diagnosis or medications a student is taking. Any student who is ill or injured is to be seen in the health office, and the nurse or health assistant will coordinate with the parent to determine whether or not the student needs to go home. Students will only be released to a person listed on their emergency card after verification with a picture ID.
Prescription and over the counter medications can be stored in the health office with the proper paperwork. Medication forms can be printed from the FORMS section of this page.
