FROM THE FIRST AID ROOM

posted Aug 25, 2017, 6:19 AM by Hiromi Takahashi

More students tend to visit the First Aid Room for feeling sick from jet lag, fatigue and other causes during the first few weeks of the 2nd term. At this time, we would like to remind you what we do at the first aid room once again. Please read the following information carefully.

What we do at the First Aid Room

If a student gets injured, or his/her condition deteriorates while at school, the following steps will be taken:

(1) Send the student to the First Aid Room. The student is checked for the temperature and is provided first aid only. The First Aid Room provides a temporary shelter for sick children until his/her parent/guardian’s arrival for the pick-up. No medical treatment is provided at the First Aid Room.

(2) Contact the parent/guardian, according to the information submitted to the school office, if medical treatment beyond first aid is needed. It will be the parent/guardian’s responsibility to determine any immediate need for medical care, except in case of medical emergency. Once the student is handed over, the parent/guardian will be responsible for the student.

(3) In case the symptom of infectious diseases is seen, “Return Home Advisory” is applied. (Please refer to Return Home Advisory)

If it is necessary, our parent-volunteers will look for you in the Parents’ Waiting Room and will post your child’s name on our orange “Paging Board” at three locations: Entrance Hall, Parents’ Waiting Room and outside of the First Aid Room. Our volunteers will look for you only in the Parents’ Waiting Room and the library unless PTA Seminars or other special events are being held at other locations. If you are likely to wait for your child in other locations (e.g., parking lot) please notify the First Aid Room. Please be sure to check the “Paging Board” frequently.
