Clinic Hours: 9:15am to 4:15pm
If there is a situation while the clinic is closed that cannot wait, the student should report to their grade level house and someone will provide assistance or get in contact with the nurse.
All students coming to the clinic must have a clinic pass.
Parents, please also be aware of the contact numbers we have on file. If your phone number or contact information changes, please let the school know right away. In a case of an emergency, we will need to get ahold of the parents immediately. Thank you for your consideration.
