The Norton Park Elementary clinic is led by Nurse Deborah Walker. Please see the guidelines below regarding clinic services:
- The clinic is open from 7:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. each school day.
- The extent of first aid treatment provided in the clinic for minor illness/injury is ice packs, cold compresses, band aids/bandages, drink/snack and rest.
- All children are assessed in the clinic. I will use my best nursing judgement to provide care based on that assessment. I am not a doctor and cannot diagnose a child's ailment.
- The clinic does not stock over-the-counter medication for headaches, stomachaches, colds, or cough. These medications must be brought to school by the parent with a signed authorization to give the medicine. Medicine must be in its original container.
- All children with a fever of 101 or greater must go home. They must be free from fever for 24 hours before they can return to school.
- All children with more than two episodes of diarrhea must go home. They cannot return to school until 24 hours from the last episode of diarrhea.
- All children who vomit more than once must go home. They cannot return to school until 24 hours from the last vomiting episode.
- All forms, information, and policies in regard to student health services can be found on the Cobb County Schools main web page under "School Health Services".
Please remember that sending your child to school sick puts all other students and staff at risk of becoming ill.
