Confidentiality and Emergency Information

Health Records Confidentiality

The Spencerport Central Schools maintains accurate and up-to-date health records for its students. Health records include confidential disclosures or findings, and as such, shall be kept confidential. Individual records may be interpreted by the nurse to administrators, teachers, counselors and other school staff, on a need to know basis, consistent with law.

Parents may request that their child's health information is not shared with school staff by making a written request to the school principal.

Emergency Information

Annually, school nurses ask parents and persons in parental authority for updated emergency medical information, including emergency contacts, physician's name and telephone, preferred hospital and permission to transport children via ambulance. If any of this information changes during the school year, please notify the nurse at your child's school.
