If a significant emergency situation occurs the Winnetka Fire Department will be called to transport students for emergency care. Parents will be notified immediately to secure permission for treatment of the student upon arrival at the hospital. According to Illinois law and Evanston Hospital Policy, medical and surgical procedures are performed on children under the age of 18 only if the parent's or legal guardian's written consent is received. If the physician attending the student determines that the student’s health would be adversely affected, care will be given. The nurse or a school official will stay with the child until a parent arrives.
In addition, school wellness, including good nutrition and regular physical activities are strongly promoted as part of the District’s educational program, which also includes P.E., after school sports and a healthy meal program.
