Health Room

The Health Room is staffed by Roberta Azrak, BSN RN
Phone: 561-882-3484

The Health Room’s purpose is to promote optimal health and wellness for all students. The nurse assesses students with signs and symptoms of illness but cannot prescribe medication or treatments. If necessary, the nurse will assist the parent or guardian in determining if further medical evaluation is needed.
If a student has been prescribed medication or treatments to be given daily while in school or PRN (on an as needed basis) please follow the Parent Guide for Medication at School Guideline below:

Parent Guide for Medications at School

The following is required before any medication can be taken by or administered to a child on school grounds:

1. A new Authorization for Medication/Treatment Form is required each school year and for any changes to the current order during the school year.

  • The form (available in the physician’s office) must be completed by the
    prescribing physician for all medication.
  • The form must also have the parent signature completed in order
    for medication to be administered.

2. Prescribed and Over-the-Counter Medications:

  • Prescribed medication must be in the original container with a
    pharmacy label, not expired and matching the current
    physician’s order. When filling your prescription, request the
    pharmacy labels’ expiration date state, “See Manufacturer’s
    Medication Expiration Date.”
  • Over-the-counter medications must also be in the original unopened
    container, not expired and labeled with the child’s name.
  • Medication must be delivered to the school by an adult, not your
    child. A medication count and co-signature for the delivery and receipt
    of the medication will be required.
  • A current photo of the child is required for identification purposes
    and will be attached to the medication record. The photo should be
    delivered with the physician’s order and medication.

3. Please schedule visits to your child’s doctor during the summer in preparation for the new school year.
