ABOUT US
Glenbard East Health Center is staffed by a full-time nurse, a part-time nurse, and one secretary. Students are assisted with immediate health concerns and chronic medical challenges. The school nurses work closely with all members of the pupil personnel team, which includes guidance counselors, school psychologists, deans, and social workers. The school nurses identify and plan for students with health concerns with a goal of optimal health. Toward that goal, chronic illness, hospitalizations, attendance, and injuries are monitored.

A student who becomes ill during the school day should obtain a pass from the classroom teacher before going to the Health Center unless an emergency situation exists. Students requiring to be excused from school due to illness or injury must report to the Health Center. Students are excused with the permission of a parent/guardian or designee only.

Parents may request in writing a temporary excuse from participation in physical education for up to three (3) days in any one semester. A physician’s note must be presented for excuses beyond three (3) days.

In accordance with the Illinois School Code a Medication Form must be completed and signed by both the physician and guardian to allow medication to be dispensed at school.
