If your child does not have health insurance, free or low cost coverage is available through Pennsylvania Children’s Health Insurance Program, (CHIP). CHIP is administered by the Pennsylvania Insurance Department and the coverage is for quality medical services through regular health insurance companies. Applications for CHIP are available in all the school health offices or you may call 1-800-986-KIDS
The Health Office maintains Emergency Contact/Release Information for each student. This information facilitates the care of an ill or injured student as well as provides health office staff with routine contact and release information. Only those persons, (including parents/guardians), indicated on this document will be contacted and can give permission for the student to leave the building. In Elementary and Middle School, the child must be picked up from the health office. Facilities are available for temporary care only. Parents should develop a plan that would allow their child to be picked up from school within a half hour of notification of an illness or an injury.
It is essential that parents keep this information current. Please update EACH SCHOOL YEAR your emergency contact numbers/medical information via dashboard for each child in your household that attends the District Schools..To update your child’s Emergency Contact/Release Information go to the Parent Dashboard under Account Preferences. Families with more than one Dashboard account should contact their child’s Health Office to update.
