Health Care And Emergencies
The Board of Trustees recognizes the importance of taking appropriate action whenever an emergency threatens the safety, health or welfare of a student at school or during school-sponsored activities.

(cf. 3516 - Emergencies and Disaster Preparedness Plan)
(cf. 5141.21 - Administering Medication and Monitoring Health Conditions)
(cf. 5141.22 - Infectious Diseases)
(cf. 5142 - Safety)
The Superintendent or designee shall develop procedures to ensure that first aid and/or medical attention is provided as quickly as possible when student accidents and injuries occur and that parents/guardians are notified as appropriate.
(cf. 3530 - Risk Management/Insurance)
(cf. 5143 - Insurance)
(cf. 6145.2 - Athletic Competition)
The Superintendent or designee shall ask parents/guardians to provide emergency information in order to facilitate immediate contact with parents/guardians if an accident or illness occurs.
District staff shall appropriately report and document student accidents.
The Board believes that staff members should not be placed in the position of determining whether or not to follow any parental or medical "do not resuscitate" orders. Staff shall not accept or follow any such orders unless they have been informed by the Superintendent or designee that the request to accept such an order has been submitted to the Superintendent or designee, signed by the parent/guardian, and supported by a written statement from the student's physician and an order from an appropriate court.
The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that all parents/guardians are informed of this policy.
