Health Services

  • The health and welfare of our students is of the utmost importance to us. The San Mateo Union High School District commits to providing a clean and safe environment for our students, and strives to keep parents and family members informed about medical practices and any potential hazards to your child. 

    For information or for questions regarding health forms or requirements, please contact the Health Services Manager Sara Devaney at sdevaney@smuhsd.org. For students in need of health services at the school sites, please contact the health aide at your school.

  • Health Office

    The Health Aide assists students who become ill or injured during the school day. The Health Aide will contact a parent/guardian if it is necessary for the student to go home. The Health Aide will then issue the student a “Permit to Leave” for illness reasons and update the student’s attendance.  

    All students that visit the Heath Office must have a hall pass from their teacher or a summons pass and sign-in on the office computer before coming to the Health Office. Students are to stay in the Health Office for a maximum of 15 minutes before determining if the student needs to go home or back to class. 

    The Health Office does not dispense any medication to students without a Medication Authorization Form on file. The form must be completed by both guardian and physician and submitted to the Health Aide for review.

    Can students bring over-the-counter medications to school?

    • Students cannot carry any medications on school grounds. 
    • Medications must be kept in the Health Aide’s office along with a guardian or doctor’s note on file. 

    *Students may carry an inhaler if they have a doctor’s note on file. 


    Athletic Clearance

    Prior to participating in sports activities (e.g., conditioning, practices, contests), student athletes must complete their medical clearance through the Health Office. Please see the Athletics section for details.
