First aid is recognized as the immediate and temporary care given to students, staff, or visitors in case of an accident or sudden illness. It does not include diagnosis or treatment. Any care beyond first aid will not be given. In all cases of first aid, procedures for handling sudden illness and accidental injury will be provided to staff and followed as specified by the Melrose Board of Health. Parents will be notified of injuries occurring while students are on school property or at school-sponsored events.
