KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 5141

Students
HEALTH CARE AND EMERGENCIES

The School Board recognizes the importance of taking appropriate action whenever an accident or illness threatens the safety, health or welfare of a student at school or during school-sponsored activities. The Superintendent shall establish procedures to minimize the effects of an injury by providing first aid and/or medical attention as quickly as possible, to notify parents/guardians of the accident and to take other steps necessary in the interests of the student and the District.

Emergency Contact Information

To facilitate immediate contact with parents/guardians on such occasions, the Board requires parents/guardians to furnish the schools with the current information specified below:

  1. Home address and telephone number.
  2. Parent/guardian's business address and telephone number.
  3. Name, address and telephone number of a local relative or friend who is authorized by the parent/guardian to care for the student in cases of emergency when the parent/guardian cannot be reached.
  4. Local physician to call in case of emergency.

(cf. 5141.21 - Administering Medication)
( cf. 5141.3 - Health Examinations )

 

Referral to Community Resources

 

School personnel, except those possessing a special services type C certificate, should not recommend that a parent or guardian seek services from a specific physician, psychologist, or other health specialist. Violations of this policy may result in disciplinary action.

 

School personnel may provide a community resource list that identifies community medical and mental health resources. The Superintendent is responsible for ensuring that any list of community providers complies with legal requirements.
