ACCIDENT REPORTS -- STUDENTS

If a student is involved in an accident, the parents shall be called. If the parents cannot be reached, the family doctor or emergency contact, listed on the student's card, shall be called. If the injury is serious, involving ambulance or probable hospitalization, the principal shall notify the superintendent's office prior to the end of that working day.

A reportable school injury is defined as one that causes the student to miss ½ day or more of school, or is serious enough to require treatment by a health care professional (i.e. school nurse, MD, EMT, etc.). This includes injuries that happen while going to or from school, during all school-related activities and anywhere on school property during normal school hours.

Reports of accidents to students are to be made online thru the Utah Department of Health website.
