Health Services at Kennedy
Having a safe, healthy school is our goal at Kennedy Junior High School. There is a health office at Kennedy for students who have become ill or injured or who need help with medical problems. The health office is staffed by a health technician certified in First Aid and CPR/AED during each school day.
The health office is open from 7:45 am to 3:15 pm. A certified School Nurse is assigned to the school and is available on an on-call basis when she is not in the building.
Students must obtain a pass from their classroom teacher before reporting to the health office. During passing period, students should inform their next teacher if they need to go to the health office and they should obtain a pass. This applies to all cases with, of course, the exception of an emergency. The health office maintains a record of student visits.
STUDENTS MAY NOT LEAVE THE SCHOOL FOR ILLNESS/INJURY WITHOUT FIRST REPORTING TO THE HEALTH OFFICE OF AUTHORIZATION.
