Health and Wellness
Bloomfield Hills Schools is committed to providing a safe and healthy school environment. Updated Medical Action Plans (MAPs) and Medical Management Plans (MMPs), along with our BHS Authorization for Prescription and Non-Prescription Medication forms are required at the start of every school year and expire on the last day of school instruction.
These forms provide BHS with required medical direction from your child’s licensed healthcare provider and allows staff to provide services including medication administration, medical procedures and/or medical interventions. Without prescribed orders, only interventions including soap, water, adhesive bandages, ice and age appropriate comfort will be provided.
With the requirement to report, we are asking that parents/guardians and staff complete the below Notify the Nurse form to report student and staff cases of Covid-19 and other diagnosed communicable diseases. Buildings may continue to report flu like illness, unspecified illnesses and stomach virus conditions independently.
Please direct any questions that you may have by calling the district nurse at 248-341-5435.
