First Aid - The school attempts to provide a safe environment, free from accident. If any accident or sudden illness occurs, the parent will be notified immediately.

Any care beyond first aid will not be given by the school and is the responsibility of the parents.

If first aid is necessary the school will provide it. The provisions of Chapter 41, Section l00C, shall protect any staff member who performs first aid services pursuant to this section.

Inclement Weather - During inclement or cold weather, children should not come to school earlier than 15 minutes before the start of the pupil day so that they will not have to stand outside. During extremely bad weather, doors shall be open so that children may enter the building as soon as they arrive at school.
