The school health clinic is provided to give preliminary care to students who become ill or injured during the school day. The clinic is located on the first floor and students will be directed by office staff when a nurse is available. The nurse is in the building daily from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. In the event of an illness or accident, the school will make an attempt to contact the home. Under no circumstances will the student be allowed to leave school without making parent/guardian or emergency person contact.
Students seeking to use the Lincoln Health Center for medical related issues must have prior parent permission to access the LHC services. The Lincoln Health Center is a separate entity, but serves Lincoln students for medical, counseling, and substance abuse counseling. Students need to check in with the office before accessing the LHC. It is open daily from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
Students involved in an accident while at school or while taking part in a school-sponsored activity should report the accident at the office. The necessary forms will be completed at the time the accident is reported. This must be done at the earliest possible time.
All students new to the district are required to have an MMR booster. A Certification of Immunization Status Form, distributed by the Washington Department of Social and Health Services, shall be completed by the student's parent/guardian. This certificate shall be made part of the student's permanent record.
