The RHS Health Room is designed to be a place of temporary respite for students who are not feeling well. Students can only enter the Health Room after assessment by the Attendance team.
If a student is not feeling well, they will come down to Attendance, either on their own or escorted by another student.
Students will be accessed by the Attendance team and/or school nurse, to determine the best course of action.
Students will be sent home under the following circumstances:
1. throwing up
2. fever of 100.5 or higher
911* will be called under the following circumstances:
1. Life-threatening emergencies
3. Any other illness or emergency that warrants a 911 response team
*there is no charge for 911 to respond to Rampart, charges come when students are transported to a medical facility.
Students will be allowed to enter the Health Room and rest for 15 minutes:
1. If a quick rest will enable them to return to the classroom environment
2. If a longer rest is needed, students will be sent home.
