First Aid and Medical Accomodations

Medical Conditions/Accommodations

It is the responsibility of the parent to update the school nurse with any medical conditions and/or accommodations as soon as possible so we can inform our chaperones of any alerts as well as prepare the mountain staff and emergency services.  Confidentiality will be maintained on a need to know basis.

Our medical chaperone will be responsible for maintaining any medications and will be informed of special conditions that need attention.  It is possible that this person may be required to accompany any injured student to the nearest medical facility.
