TRANSPORTATION FOR STUDENT EMERGENCIES
When a student becomes ill or injured at school, it may be necessary for the student to be taken home, to a doctor, or to a hospital. The parent or legal guardian should assume this responsibility, except in an emergency when it is apparent that an ambulance or emergency medical service should be called immediately. Ambulance and emergency medical cost is the parent’s/guardian responsibility. The final responsibility for securing the safe transportation of a sick or injured student from school to home, hospital or to emergency medical care rests with the principal or his/her designee. No seriously sick or injured student will be allowed to go home unless there is a responsible adult to provide for the student’s care. The student will remain in school when all measures available to locate a responsible adult have failed. When school is dismissed and no adult is available, the Child Protective Services will be contacted.
