Health Office

The AAS-SP Health Center is staffed by a registered nurse who 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 Medem International Medical Clinic.

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.

Please feel free to contact the Health Center at 8 (812) 320.8925 ext. 15911 or anna.menshchikova@aas.ru, or stop by and visit me in the Health Office on the first floor. You are always welcome.

Yours in health,

Anna Menshchikova, School Nurse

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.
