Glenbard North Health Center is staffed by two certified school nurses and one secretary. Students are assisted with immediate health concerns and chronic medical challenges. The school nurses work closely with all members of the pupil personnel team, which includes guidance counselors, school psychologists, deans, and social workers. The school nurses identify and plan for students with health concerns with a goal of optimal health. Toward that goal, chronic illness, hospitalizations, attendance, and injuries are monitored.
A student who becomes ill during the school day should obtain a pass from the classroom teacher before going to the Health Center, unless an emergency situation exists. Students requiring to be excused from school due to illness or injury must report to the Health Center. Students are excused with the permission of a parent/guardian or designee only.
Parents may request in writing a temporary excuse from participation in physical education for up to three (3) days in any one semester. A physician’s note must be presented for excuses beyond three (3) days.
Schools across the nation are experiencing more and more students who have latex allergies. Often, students with this allergy can have severe and even life-threatening reactions if exposed to latex resin and powders. Glenbard North has several students with latex allergies, and for their safety, certain latex products are not allowed on campus. Latex balloons and “Silly String” pose a significant health threat to students with a latex allergy. These products are NOT ALLOWED on campus at any time, including after school, evening or weekend events.
In accordance with the Illinois School Code a Medication Administration Form must be completed and signed by both the physician and guardian to allow medication to be dispensed at school.
