A Health Room is provided at St. Mark School where students may come if they are injured or become ill. The Health Room is staffed by a MACS Nurse (RN) five days a week.  The school office staff is CPR and First Aid certified and able to manage situations as they develop. In addition, we have parent volunteers who are nurses and assist in the Health Room and with health screenings. While we are able to provide for the initial evaluation of student’s injuries or illnesses, we are not staffed, nor do we have the space to provide more than an initial
evaluation. Nurse volunteers or school staff will notify you in the event of suspected serious illness
or injury.

As we all know, children do, despite our best efforts, become ill. A few pointers about illness; please do not send your child to school if he or she has experienced any of the following within the past 24 hours:

  • Fever (Temperature over 100)
  • Vomiting
  • Rashes which may be infectious or contagious
  • Drainage from eyes or ears, yellow or green drainage from the nose
  • If your child has been diagnosed with a communicable disease (strep throat or conjunctivitis (pink eye), please keep him/her home until he/she is no longer contagious. For strep throat, this means for 24 hours after the Penicillin is started or 36 hours if Erythromycin is used.

In addition, we will ask you to pick your child up from school if we see any of the following signs
or symptoms:

  • Fever (Temperature over 101 with no other symptoms)
  • Fever (Temperature over 100 accompanied by other symptoms)
  • Rashes which may be infectious or contagious (Scarlet fever, chicken pox, impetigo, and ringworm are common examples) or about which we are uncertain
  • Drainage from eyes or ears, yellow or green drainage from the nose
  • Cough that is productive (produces mucus)

If your child contracts Lice they must be excluded from school and come to health room to be
checked by the nurse. Upon clearance from the nurse, the student can be admitted to class.
