Private Bilingual Costa Rica, Internacional School, Blue Valley School | First Aid

Blue Valley is a private, bilingual, international school that offers a rigorous American curriculum, yet is rooted in local culture and includes a strong Spanish program.

Students sometimes come to the office for help with minor ailments. The school tries to avoid giving medication to a child but, since they turn to us when they are uncomfortable, we try to help them as follows:

 

  • We give them acetaminophen for pain or a slight fever. Aside from that, we call the parents.
  • Many parents approve and request homeopathy for their children.
  • The school will not give medication to a child without a signed permission. A form must be filled out by the parents indicating what medicine listed above each child can take.
  • If a student has a chronic illness (e.g asthma) or symptom (e.g nose bleeding) or is somewhat ill (e.g has a runny nose), parents should send whatever prescription medicine they might need and indicate the dose that school personnel should administer.
  • If a health emergency happens on school grounds, Blue Valley has a contract with “Emergencias Médicas”, a company that provides service for health emergencies. A doctor, paramedic or ambulance promptly answers our call.
  • Should the student need further care, the ambulance takes the student to the Hospital Cima with a member of our staff in the ambulance. Parents are contacted immediately.
