Close contact / quarantine note:
When a positive COVID-19 case is identified at school (or school events/athletics), our staff follow the Illinois Department of Public Health’s guidance when determining who is a close contact and needs to quarantine. Please note that, under the current guidance, when someone is fully vaccinated and not showing symptoms they are not required to quarantine.
Glenbard West Health Center is staffed by two full-time certified school nurses and a secretary. Students are assisted with immediate health concerns and chronic medical challenges. The school nurses work closely with all members of the pupil personnel team which includes guidance counselors, school psychologists, deans, and social workers. The school nurses identify and plan for students with health concerns with a goal of optimal health. Toward that goal, chronic illness, hospitalizations, attendance, and injuries are monitored.
A student who becomes ill during the school day should obtain a pass from the classroom teacher before going to the Health Center unless an emergency situation exists. Students requiring to be excused from school due to illness or injury must report to the Health Center. Students are excused with the permission of a parent/guardian or designee only.
Parents may request in writing a temporary excuse from participation in physical education for up to three (3) days in any one semester. A physician’s note must be presented for excuses beyond three (3) days.
In accordance with the Illinois School Code a completed Medication Form must be completed and signed by both the physician and guardian to allow medication to be dispensed at school.
