HEALTH RECORDS: The school nurse maintains a current health record on each student enrolled at Franklin County Technical School. This record contains the data from each of the services which you have just reviewed. If your child receives any immunization booster or has a physical exam, please forward this to the school nurse to facilitate accurate record maintenance. It is also important that the school nurse be alerted to any significant health problems which your child may have. Upon graduation from Franklin County Technical School, the health record will be given to each outgoing senior.
STUDENT EMERGENCY INFORMATION: Each year, student FCTS EMERGENCY INFORMATION FORMS are available on the Health Office website for you to fill out. Please list persons who are to be notified in an emergency. Obtain the consent of the person you are listing. If you change jobs or move during the school year, please remember to update the information and notify the school. Students can be released only to the parent or to the alternate person you have listed. It is essential for your child that we are kept up-to-date. Please note form below.
