In the absence of the school nurse, unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) selected and trained by the school nurse will be available to administer first aid and medications according to school policy and provided training.  A corporation school nurse is always available to UAP by phone should student care require assessment or care beyond the training of the UAP.
