Burnsville Alternative High School has a Licensed School Nurse who over sees immunization requirements and compliance on all new students at BAHS. The nurse is responsible for identifying chronic health needs of students in the building that could be life threatening. A health plan is developed to address the current health needs and is shared with the staff. All self carry medications need instruction provided before the student is allowed to self carry at school. There is not a nurse on site at the alternative school this year so minor first aid needs are implemented by the staff who have been trained. Major injuries or health concerns will be reported to the LSN for further evaluation and a treatment plan. All Special Ed evaluations regarding health status will be performed by the LSN. Updates to student's health condition should also be directed to the LSN at BHS.
Emergency contact forms are needed on every student to facilitate appropriate care for students who become ill or are injured at school. These forms will be filled out at intake or within the first week of the school year. Download Health Forms
The health office does not supply any medications for students. Any medications brought to school must come in the original container. All medication requires a parent signature and a signature from a person licensed to prescribe medication (Examples include: Certified Nurse Practitioner and Physician).
