Health Care Guidelines
Each school has a health clinic operated by a registered nurse whose time may be shared with other schools for emergencies should the need arise.
When students visit the clinic, calls home are made at the discretion of the nurse; there is no “standard” nursing response. If the nurse has any concerns about a child a call will be made home to the parent/guardian.

In order to prevent the spread of illness, as well as cause undue stress on children, we require that any child who has had a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea only come to school when they have been symptom free for 24 hours.
Complete information with regard to required immunizations and physical examinations, medication administration during the school day, and when a child should be kept home due to illness, etc. can be found in the Belmont Public Schools Health and Nursing Department website.
