Cawston is fortunate to have a Health Technician trained in first aid and CPR. The primary role of the Health Technician is to provide basic first aid for unexpected injuries, to assist with medications when it is determined they must be given at school; and to maintain health records on all children attending school at their site. Health Technicians are able to reach the District Nurses by cell phone as needed.
TIPS FOR A HEALTHIER SCHOOL YEAR
Relay important health information on your child's emergency card every year.
Speak with the Health Technician and teacher(s) regarding serious health issues.
Include a working phone number for you and working alternate numbers in case of urgency or emergency, and update the school office as needed.
By law, the school cannot administer any medication, including over the counter medication, or treatment without parent permission and a physician's order. We can assist your with this process, please ask.
