health & support services

  •  
    IMPORTANT - If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, including health reasons, please email us (attendance@theprojectschool.org) to let us know. The front office will then alert your child's teachers.
     
     
    Health Office
    The Project School is staffed by a health aide, Denise Hayashi. She is available to administer medications, treat minor injuries, and assess medical situations. The Health Aide can be reached by calling the main school number (812.558.0041 ext 2003), or emailing Denise.
     
    It is essential that all parents and guardians alert the school about health needs or concerns. If you have information about your child that you have not shared in your registration materials, please let us know immediately.

    Medication
    All medications - whether prescribed or over the counter - must be brought into the school by a parent or guardian, and given directly to the front office staff or Health Aide. A form must be completed for the parent or guardian, which instructs how the medication will be administered. The medication must remain in the health office for all administration. We prefer that the parent or guardian then collect the medication back when administration has concluded. Questions should be addressed with the Health Aide.
