The role of the Aptos High School Health Office is to serve all students by providing treatment and care in support of the student's health and well-being while on campus.  The Health Office is located on the backside of the Administration Building (Main Office), and can provide services such as:

  • Emergency first aid
  • Health and wellness support services, resources and referrals
  • Vision and hearing screening
  • Medical support, referrals and resources
  • Specialized healthcare procedures per physician recommendations
  • Support for services and limitations needed per physician's medical orders
  • Medical record and immunization tracking
  • Individualized health care plans
  • Medication administration

IMPORTANT:  All students must have an up-to-date Emergency Card on file with the Health Office.  A parent/guardian is required to keep the school informed of their student's health related needs.

Student Health Care Plans
  • If your child has an ongoing or temporary medical diagnosis of a health condition, injury or disability which may require medication, limitations, special needs, daily routine health care, emergency first aid, or any other accommodations, please contact the school health office. A health care plan may be developed to help insure the health and safety of your student at school.
  • All health care plans must be reviewed and updated each school year. Please notify the health office of any changes to your child's current health care.
Medication at School
  • Medication at school is limited to those students who require medicine during the school day for treatment of a specific health problem. Medications are to be supplied by the parent in a pharmacy bottle or original container labeled with the student's name, name of medication. Correct dosage, as well as the date and amount of original medication in the container. 
  • ​Medication is stored in the Health Office with the exception of those situations in which a student requires medication on his/her for treatment of emergency medical conditions.
  • The student’s physician must prescribe medication. Non-prescription medications must also be authorized by the student's physician. The parent and physician must complete and sign the consent and authorization form #H-6, "Parent/Physician Request for Administration of Prescribed Medication".
  • Medications that continue into a new school year require written re-authorization by parent and physician each school year. If your child is currently raking medication at school, please pick up all unused medication by the last day of school.
  • Medication consent forms are available in the school health office
