Health Office

The AAS Health Center is staffed by a full-time doctor and a full-time registered nurse from 8:00 to 18:00. The staff is trained and equipped to provide immediate first aid, treatment of minor injuries, and health-related information to students, staff and members of the wider School community. If a student needs to receive medication while at school, the Health Center staff is able to administer it according to written parental consent.

For serious illness or accidents requiring further medical treatment, parents are notified and arrangements made as necessary. In the event of a serious incident requiring immediate assistance, an ambulance will be summoned from the Treatment and Rehabilitation Center hospital (www.med-rf.ru), which is two blocks away from AAS.

Throughout the year, the Health Center performs health screenings for all students and reviews health records for required immunizations or tests. The flu vaccination and tick-borne encephalitis vaccination programs are offered seasonally, and are open to staff and family members as well.

The Health Center staff is also on hand to provide assistance at the various extra-curricular activities outside of school hours and on weekends - for example, sporting events and practices, after-school activities, and tournaments. 

Please feel free to contact the Health Center at 231-4488 ext. 1-3520 or 1-3521 or health.office@aas.ru, or stop by and visit us in Room 1011 near the security desk in the main lobby. You are always welcome.

Yours in health,

Cesar M. Dalida, M.D., Erin Schlip, R.N., and AAS Health Office Staff

Illness and School Attendance: When Should My Child Stay Home?

Parents often have questions regarding when a child should stay home from school due to illness. Please click here for helpful guidelines to determine whether your child should stay home. A quick summary: Children with a contagious condition such as chicken pox, strep throat, measles, mumps, etc. must stay home from school. A child may not attend school with a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.8 Celsius) or higher and must be fever free without the use of antipyretics (Tylenol, Panadol, Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, etc.) for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
