Nurse

Welcome to the Health Services Web page! JTHS nurses play a vital role in fulfilling the district’s commitment to a holistic approach in supporting our students. Central's Health Office is located in room 295

Minor first aid is available to students who become ill or injured at school. However, first aid is immediate and temporary care. Care beyond first aid must be provided by the parents or family physician. Students who become ill at school can have the nurse notify their parent or guardian to arrange for them to go home.

If students have questions concerning their health, they should make arrangements to see the nurse. However, the student should remember that there are appropriate times to see the nurse and certain procedures should be followed:

  • Get a pass from the teacher.
  • Use good judgment as to the time to come to the Nurse’s Office.
  • Come in for first-aid immediately following an injury that occurs at school, especially in physical education class.

Release from School for Medical Appointments
If your child needs to be released from school due to a medical appointment, please call the attendance office at least two hours before you need to pick up your student for an early release pass. The attendance office can be reached at 815-727-6801.
