The health office at CMIS is staffed by registered nurse, Ms. Siam Namwong, and health officer, Ms. Kate Robertson, and is equipped to handle minor incidents and illnesses. A child should not be sent to school if they do not feel well, or if they have an infectious condition. Parents are asked to notify the health office promptly if their child has an infectious condition such as head lice, pinkeye, measles, or chicken pox. If a child becomes ill or is injured at school, the parents will be notified as quickly as possible. Emergency Information
CMIS requires that parents or guardians complete the emergency information form that is distributed to all students during the first week of classes. Any special health concerns your child has should be noted on the form, as well as specific instructions relating to administering of medications, and up-to-date parent or guardian contact information. Note: It is essential that emergency phone numbers and medical information be updated at the health office as necessary throughout the year. Medication
Elementary students who require medication during the day should deliver it to the health office upon arriving at school in the morning. The medication should have an accompanying note containing the child’s name and class, the dosage, and times of administration. High school students may self-administer their prescribed medication, or may leave it with the nurse.
