The Hensle Health Center is staffed seven days a week, 24 hours a day, when school is in session. The staff includes three full-time and two part-time nurses with a combined 50 plus years of experience in caring for adolescents. On long weekends, the health center is closed; however, a nurse is on call in case of an emergency.
Day students who become ill or are injured while at school should report to the Health Center. If the determination is made that the student is too ill to continue attending classes, his or her parents will be notified and the student will be permitted to go home.
Boarding students who are too ill to attend classes must report to the health center fully dressed before their first obligation. NO CLASS EXCUSES will be given by the health center to students who fail to report before classes begin. Students who are excused from classes are not allowed to participate in ANY after-school activities.
Athletic and Physical Education Injuries All injuries should be reported to the health center within 72 hours, especially injuries requiring medical attention outside of the school. Parents of day students should note that it is difficult to obtain reimbursement for doctor and hospital bills if a report has not been filed with the school's insurance carrier. An orthopedic physician is available to screen athletic injuries as needed. The health center, doctor and trainer work together to keep our students fit and on the field.
