Health Services

stethoscopeStudents’ health and safety are our first priority. FHS has a registered nurse on campus during all school hours to provide medical care and assistance for injuries, illnesses, or any other health-related concerns. To contact the nurse, Lori Papciak, RN: Phone: 847.755.2662, Fax: 847.755.2861, Email: [email protected].

A student who is ill may obtain a pass from a teacher and go to the nurse’s office. If the student must be sent home, a parent, guardian or other responsible adult must give permission through the nurse’s office for the student to leave school.

A student who is ill and absent from school due to a communicable disease must see the nurse before returning to classes. Some communicable diseases require a doctor’s release when the student returns to school.

If a student is unable to participate in the regular physical education class for more than three days, the nurse must be given a medical excuse from a physician stating the nature and time limitation of the condition. A parent note is acceptable if the time out of class is three days or less.
