Clinic GuidelinesThe clinic is here to serve the student as effectively and efficiently as possible. However, due to the size and health needs of the school, some simple guidelines must be followed in order to serve students with the best possible care.
Students should report to class prior to coming to the clinic and obtain a Clinic Referral from the teacher. (Not required for emergency.)
Students are encouraged not to call parents/ guardians from classroom prior to coming to the clinic. The nurse will assess the student's needs and notify parents/guardians by phone when an early dismissal from school is appropriate and/or when the nurse feels a medical referral is required.

- Smithfield Middle is much like a small community, and we are here to assist you in anyway we can, but we must be notified of chronic problems, allergies, inhalers, medications, and the history of past illness that may impact your child while here at school. PLEASE CONTACT THE NURSE to report any health conditions/concerns.
