Health Care And Emergencies
The Board of Education 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.
To facilitate immediate contact with parents/guardians when an accident or illness occurs, 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 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.
Under Education Code 49407, no school district shall be held liable for the reasonable treatment of a student without the consent of the parent/guardian when the student requires reasonable medical treatment and the parent/guardian cannot be reached, unless a written objection to medical treatment has been filed with the school district.
District employees are trained and expected to respond to emergency situations without discrimination. If any student needs resuscitation, staff shall make every effort to resuscitate him/her.
The Board prohibits staff members from accepting or following any parental or medical "Do Not Resuscitate" orders.
The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that all parents/guardians are informed of this policy.
