Welcome to the MacArthur Health Office

Our health office has a full-time nurse, Dina Ward RN (505)344-1482 x56505, and a full-time health assistant, Renee Sanchez (505)344-1482 x56538. The health office is located in room 102 in the main building.

Health office staff provide basic first aid for students when they become ill or injured during the school day. In the event of illness or serious injury during the school day you will be notified by phone and required to pick up your child. Your child may not walk home or be put on a school bus when they are ill. It is important that staff have current phone numbers at all times.

In order to enusre your child's safety and well being during the school day, contact the school nurse when your child experiences an injury resulting in activity restrictions, including casting and splinting or a medical condition requiring surgery.



Immunizations: The State of New Mexico law requires that all students be up-to-date with their required immunizations before being enrolled into school.

Student Health: The school nurse should be informed about any health concerns, medical diagnoses or medication(s) a student is taking. It is recommended that if a student has the diagnosis of severe allergy, asthma or seizure activity, parents bring emergency medication(s) with the signed provider authoriztion to school the first day of class.

Medication Administration at School: APS has a medication policy to address the use of medicines at school.  All medications must be in the original labeled container and must be signed in by the school nurse.  Prescription medications require an authorization form signed by the child’s physician and parent.  A Parent Authorization form is required for over the counter medication.  No child will be given any kind of medication at school without following APS procedures."Whenever possible medication will be given at home. The licensed school nurse will evaluate the necessity of giving medication during school hours." [pg. 3 of 14 APS Nursing Manual, Section VIII Medication]
