Healthy Students, Ready LearnersOur students learn best when they are healthy. At Green Woods Charter School we are dedicated to promoting and protecting the health of students as well as our staff. One of the most important goals of a school nurse is to help identify health conditions that may adversely impact a student from learning. Our School Nurse and our staff help our students to develop their own good health habits that will last throughout their lifetime.

About the Health Room
The Health Room cares for student's injuries that occur at school. The school's responsibility for the administration of emergency care is primarily limited to first aid only. First Aid is defined as the immediate and temporary care given in order to prevent further injury until advanced medical care can be secured.
Transportation, except for emergencies, is the responsibility of the parent or guardian within one hour. If you are unavailable by phone during the day, and are unable to pick up your child within one hour of notification, it is essential that the parent/guardian provide the school with emergency numbers.
Please report ALL communicable diseases (chickenpox, whooping cough, strep throat, scarlet fever, pink eye, impetigo, fifth's disease, head lice, scabies, ring worm, measles, mumps, etc.) to the School Health office. Keep your child home for a period of 24 hours of medication treatment if indicated, or until after the contagious period for the illness is over. This time frame may be longer for more serious communicable diseases.
Student's may return to school after they are fever free (without the use of fever reducing medications) for 24 hours, vomiting and/or diarrhea free for 24 hours.
