WHAT'S HAPPENING AT GAMBLE ROGERS?

Due to the recent “Parents’ Bill of Rights”, F. S. 1014.06 – Parental Consent for Health Care Services, parents must give written consent in order for their child to access health care while at school.  This consent will allow the school nurse to provide care and treatment to your child for injuries and illnesses, and when necessary, emergency health services performed until Emergency Medical Services arrive on campus.  Should you decline consent for these services, you will be notified any time your student has such a need, and you will be responsible for arrangement of care outside of the school setting. This consent will remain in effect until your child transfers to another school district, graduates, or you indicate in writing that you wish to rescind this consent for school health services. 

Please visit this survey to give permission for your child to receive school health services. This information must be completed by January 18, 2022.

For more information, please call the Health Services Department at (904) 547-7693.
