    Child Abuse Referrals

    It is mandatory for school board employees to report incidences of child abuse, suspected or confirmed.  Administration asks that employees inform them if a report of suspected abuse is called into the hotline.  Keep a record of the incident, date, and name of person you contacted.  Refer to http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/programs/abuse/ for reporting information.  The Child Abuse Hotline phone number is 1-800-962-2873.


    Please attend to minor injuries in the classroom and on the playground.  The clinic is for students who require care beyond the teacher’s resources.  (If a student is too sick to be in your classroom, he/she is too sick to be at school.)  A student must have a completed Clinic Pass to go to the clinic.  Also, a student will return to class with a pass stating what was done in the clinic.

    Health and Safety

    Remember that a student’s health and safety are a priority. 

    Things to remember:

    • Set personal examples of good health practices.
    • Students with contagious illnesses must be sent to the clinic.
    • Students who have a fever or “throw up” must go home.
    • All medication (including inhalers and cough drops) is given in the clinic (no exception) for children who have completed the mandated LCS permission form. 
    • All student medication must be kept in the clinic.  If a child comes to school with medication, please contact administration immediately.
    • A student MUST have a completed Clinic Pass to go to the clinic.

    Communication with Parents

    Required communication:

    • If a student is absent three consecutive days from school information about communication should be written on Attendance Student Tracking form.  The guidance counselor will have the Attendance Student Tracking forms. They are also available on Forms on line.
