Health Services

This is a reminder student should not be sent to school sick. They are unable to learn well when they are feeling ill. If your child has a temperature of a 100 degrees or greater, vomiting, or diarrhea, he/she should stay at home until these symptoms have not occurred for 24 hours or otherwise approved by the school nurse.

A student who becomes ill or needs medical attention must report to the nurse's office for evaluation. If necessary, parents will be contacted and will be responsible for transportation if the student is sent home. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE SCHOOL FOR AN ILLNESS UNLESS THEY HAVE VISITED THE NURSE'S OFFICE. Once it has been determined that a student needs to leave for medical reasons, they must sign out at that time in the office.

Parents and students, please help us with this task. We are not able to help students medically if the nurse is unaware of the medical situation at hand. Please talk with the nurse prior to coming to pick up your student.

REMEMBER....

If you are unable to have your sick child seen by your Primary Physician please remember the Cox Virtual Clinic that we now offer at the Aurora Schools. Cox hours currently are 8am-12pm. Below is an attached flyer with more information.

Counseling Office Announcements

Here's how to do an ONLINE (SELF) REFERRAL (which basically means you want to "sign up" to see one of the Counselors):  

1)go to the school website www.aurorar8.org

2)click on the “sites” tab at the top, then click on “Aurora High School”. You are now on the AHS page of the website.

3)click on “menu” and click on “counseling” and then “support”.

4)click on “student self – referral form” and complete the form. 

5)submit form

This will put you in a “queue” to the Counselors and you will be called in . . . at a time that is convenient for both you and the Counselor in approximately the order in which you made the request.  The more you can tell the Counselors in the referral, the better they will be prepared for your visit.  


The "regular" application window to apply to SRTC for the 2019-20 school year has closed. Any students still wanting to be considered as a late applicant should use the link attached below. Interviews will begin soon.
