The clinic is staffed with our school nurse, Mrs. Burton, approximately three days a week. A classified staff member will monitor the clinic on the days Mrs. Burton is not at Bellflower. Please notify the nurse of any health changes or conditions that might impact a child’s performance in school. Mrs. Burton can be reached at 255-4212 (Bellflower), or 257-5953 (Lake).
Emergency Medical Authorization
The Board of Education annually will provide to parents or guardians of all students enrolled in the District’s schools an Emergency Medical Authorization Form. In the event emergency medical treatment for a student is necessary, the District will adhere to the instructions on the authorization form.
When the form is returned, it shall be kept on file and will be sent to any District to which a student is transferred. Upon request of a parent, the District may permit the parent to make changes to the previously filed form or to file a new form. If a parent does not wish to give such written permission, the parent shall indicate on the form the procedure the school is to follow in the event of a medical emergency involving the child.
Any time a student or group of students is taken out of the District to participate in a school event, the staff in charge of the event must take the Emergency Medical Authorization Forms for those students.
Direct care is given in the clinic by either the school nurse or other authorized staff member as designated by the principal. A school nurse is always available by telephone for consult.
Illness/Injury at School:
Minor illnesses and injuries are treated in the clinic and the student is returned to the classroom. If a student becomes ill at school or sustains an injury requiring outside medical attention, the parent/guardian will be called. Please be sure to have your contact information updated in Infinite Campus at all times throughout the school year.
