Challenging and Comprehensive College Preparation
Health Center
Students who are feeling ill are to report to the school office and, if necessary, the resident nurse and/or parents will be notified. If the student is taken to the hospital, parents will be notified. Please note: parents should inform the school of any medical conditions, special medication restrictions, or particular problems relevant to the student's full participation in school life.

School Nurse
The services of a school nurse are available to us when there are medical emergencies. If a student feels ill, she should come to the middle school office. The office staff will determine if the nurse should be called. If the student is too ill to return to class, we will contact her parents to come get her. Because the nurse is located on the Cranbrook campus for much of the day, students may not simply go to the nurse’s office.

PLEASE NOTE: Parents should inform the school of any medical condition, restrictions, special medication, or particular health problems relevant to the student’s full participation in school life.

Counseling Services

An outside psychological service works in an advising capacity with the deans and faculty of the middle school. Dr. Linda Flaga is available as a resource to students, parents, and teachers of the middle school. In addition, through the Special Education Department of Bloomfield Hills School, students who attend Cranbrook Kingswood Middle School may be eligible to receive the following services:
  • Health services

  • Psychological services

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. What if my child needs to take medication during the day?

    Ideally, medications should be given at home. Students who need to take prescription medication during the school day must have a written Medication Order Form/Authorization for Prescription Medication form on file in the health center (forms can be obtained online, or from the school nurse). The school recognizes that some students may need short term, or over-the-counter medication – please fill out the Authorization for short term medications/prescription or over- the-counter form if your child routinely needs this medication.  Please bring medication, properly labeled in its original container, or if over-the-counter, in its original bottle with the students name written on bottle.  This medication is to be kept in the health center and administered via the nurse or school office employees.  Middle school students may carry only Epi-pens, inhalers, or glucagon during the school day if needed for your child.
  • Q. What if my child becomes ill during the school day?

    All students should go to the office if ill/injured. The school office personnel will decide if the nurse is to be called to see the student. If the student is deemed ill enough to go home, a telephone call is placed to parents, and the student is excused and released to parents or guardian.
  • Q. What is the school policy on student physicals?

    Students must have a current physical for each school year. Physicals may not be dated before April 15th of that school year in order to be current.

    All incoming students to the sixth grade and any new students are required to have a three-page physical on file as well as the Medical Authorization (MA) form with the nurses at the start of each school year. Returning students are to fill out two forms; the Medical Authorization form and a one page physical exam form signed by a parent or guardian and physician.

    Students without the mandatory health forms are not allowed to attend any athletic practice, athletic event, or school trip.
