Health services at Moore consist of the services of one full-time registered nurse and a part time health aid. If the nurse is not in the nurse’s office, students should go to the main office and the nurse will be called. If there is a need to go home, the nurse/health assistant or secretary will inform your parent/guardian and the student dismissal procedures will be followed. Students must see the school nurse before contacting a parent/guardian for dismissal if they are not feeling well.
The School Board has a policy about students receiving medications at school. No student may carry or share another student’s prescription medications, over the counter medications or dietary supplements. All over the counter medications should be given at home. The nurse can dispense parent/guardian provided prescription medication, Advil or Tylenol with prior parent/guardian written permission.
