The EHE Nurse's Office provides health care, health education, and support to your children. The number one goal is to help your children receive the best education, which is directly related to how well they feel. In addition, Mrs. Rich is here to be a resource for health information for the families of our students.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us in the Health Office. Our phone number is 891-8526 x 514. Your own physician’s office is also a very good resource to use.

Health Office Procedures
The health room is a facility where sick or injured students are triage, assessed, treated and/or referred for further treatment. It is staffed with a State Department of Education licensed school nurse or trained health assistant at all times.
All efforts will be made to return a student to class if deemed appropriate by the health office staff. A student may be considered a candidate for exclusion from school or from the school bus at the discretion of the health room staff. Reasons for exclusion from school or bus may include, but are not limited to: vomiting, diarrhea, fever of 100 degrees or greater, significant injury, or symptoms not responding to treatment. Children may not return to school until they are free of the above symptoms for 24 hours without the aid of symptom reducing medications such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen.

All medication will be dispensed according to the Rio Rancho Public Schools medication policy and procedure:
1) Prescription medications will be dispensed in the Health Office when accompanied by a completed Medication Authorization form, and the medication is in its original pharmacy labeled container.
2) In the case of over-the-counter medication, the parent will provide the medication in an original sealed container and complete an “Over the Counter” Medication Authorization form.
A complete copy of this Policy and Procedure can be obtained via the internet at www.rrps.net or at your child’s school health office.
Students who are placed on antibiotics by their physician must remain at home for the first 24 hours of therapy.
