Contact the counseling office if you have any questions.


Health Services

This is a reminder student should not be sent to school sick. They are unable to learn well when they are feeling ill. If your child has a temperature of a 100 degrees or greater, vomiting, or diarrhea, he/she should stay at home until these symptoms have not occurred for 24 hours or otherwise approved by the school nurse.

A student who becomes ill or needs medical attention must report to the nurse's office for evaluation. If necessary, parents will be contacted and will be responsible for transportation if the student is sent home. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE SCHOOL FOR AN ILLNESS UNLESS THEY HAVE VISITED THE NURSE'S OFFICE. Once it has been determined that a student needs to leave for medical reasons, they must sign out at that time in the office.

Parents and students, please help us with this task. We are not able to help students medically if the nurse is unaware of the medical situation at hand. Please talk with the nurse prior to coming to pick up your student.


If you are unable to have your sick child seen by your Primary Physician please remember the Cox Virtual Clinic that we now offer at the Aurora Schools. Cox hours currently are 8am-12pm. Below is an attached flyer with more information.
