The Tannehill Board of Education recognizes the school's responsibility for emergency handling of accidents and sudden illnesses occurring at school or on school property. The superintendent shall prepare regulations supporting this policy and establishing a procedure for assisting students who become ill or injured during the school day.
The superintendent shall emphasize to students and parents that, in order to obtain emergency medical care, a medical release form signed by a parent/guardian must be on file. If a medical release is not on file, emergency medical care will be provided in life-threatening situations only. The regulation prepared by the superintendent must be approved and adopted by the board.
