5.70 - Emergency Treatment
In case of accident or illness, minor first aid will be administered by school personnel in accordance with the provisions on the emergency health form. It is the responsibility of the parents to contact a doctor or take the child to the doctor’s office or hospital. In the event of serious illness, mental health crisis or injury, the paramedics will be called immediately and the parents notified. Parents are responsible for payment of medical, ambulance, and/or hospital fees.
State law requires the Illinois High School Association to post a hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillators training video on its website. The law also requires the District to notify staff members and parents/guardians about the video. You are encouraged to view this 15 minute video located under the Resources section (above).
