Please review Student Health chapter of the Almanac for official regulations and policies.
Students too ill to attend classes during the school day will remain in the Health Center for rest, observation, or treatment. Medical and sports excuses are only given for classes or sports missed due to significant illness or injury. Retroactive medical excuses are not given. Occasionally, following an examination and determination by the medical director, director of nursing, or assistant director of nursing, a student may be discharged to his or her dormitory room for the day. When a student is discharged, the Health Center will notify the Deans’ Wing and the dormitory faculty.
When a student is admitted to stay overnight in the Health Center, the dormitory faculty, Deans’ Wing, and parents are notified. Parents are not routinely contacted concerning their child’s non–urgent medical care and treatment, but should feel free to be in touch with the Health Center if they have any questions or need further information. If a day student is sick at home, a parent must call the Health Center at (860) 435-3226.
