JLCA: PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS OF STUDENTS

FILE: JLCA
 
Every student enrolled must be in compliance with state requirements for admission to public school. A record of the results of any school examinations will be kept by the school nurse.
 
The school physician will make a prompt examination of all children referred to him/her by the school nurse. He/she will examine school employees when, in his/her opinion, the protection of the student's health may require it.
 
Whenever the school nurse finds a child suffering from any disease or medical problem, the situation will be reported to the parent or guardian if remedial treatment is recommended. A copy of the report will be kept by the School Nurse.
 
The Nurse Leader will make a monthly report to the Superintendent of the number of students examined; the number dismissed; and the number recommended for treatment or special adjustment of work. In all cases of dismissal or recommendation, the causes will be included in the report.
