Welcome to the garfield stem MagnetSchool Health Office!

We are here for you during virtual learning

Do you have questions about immunizations, management of chronic illnesses, medications, community resources, or any other health-related issues?

We are available during school hours (8:10am - 3:10pm) Monday through Friday.

Keep illness at home

Students who are feeling ill should stay home.

If a student becomes ill or is injured at school, they will be sent to the Health Office and parents or caregivers will be contacted by the School Nurse or Health Assistant.

Keep contact information up-to-date

If your child is ill or injured, it is essential for us to be able to get in touch with a parent, guardian, or other emergency contact.

If you change your email or phone numbers, please update your contact information in ParentVUE.

Student health conditions

Please let us know if your student has a chronic health condition, a health concern, or injury so we can work with you to keep your student healthy during the school day.

Medication Policy

Please call the nurse to discuss any prescribed medications that may need to be taken at school and complete the provider authorization form.

Students are not allowed to carry medication on campus without the proper authorization form on file.

Please call us with any questions.
