Student Assistance Program
The student assistance program (SAP) is a program designed to provide access to school and community services for students in need of extra support. The team consists of the school counselor, school nurse, school psychologist, behavior specialist, home and school visitor, school principal, speech teacher, learning support teacher, and one teacher representative from each grade level. The grade level teachers serve as case managers to facilitate the development of action plans and progress monitoring. The team meets two times every week; once to discuss student referrals in grades K-2 and once to discuss student referrals in grades 3 and 4. The team meets as a whole at the beginning, middle, and end of the year to review and update in-school SAP procedures. Information about the SAP team is listed in the student handbook and student agenda. All SAP information is kept confidential.
School Nurse/ Health Services
If a student is feeling ill in the morning, please do not send him/her to school. First Aid will be administered if any student is injured or becomes ill while at school. If further treatment is necessary the parent/guardian will be contacted to arrange transportation. In the case of serious injury local police, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), or ambulance services may be contacted. It is crucial that emergency information cards be complete, up to date, and accurate at all times. Accurate contact information is necessary to ensure the safety and security of the student, should he/she become ill or injured.
Students are not permitted to carry any medication with them (over the counter or prescription). If medication is needed, written permission must be given by the parent and/or physician on the required form. These forms can be obtained from the nurse. All medications must be locked in the nurse’s office and administered by the nurse. All medications must be in the original, labeled container.
