A School holds the most precious gift of a parent ...their CHILD, who spends more than 6 hrs of their active time in the school premise. They learn , play and grow . Any average size school in any given point of active time holds more then 250 precious sons and daughters , away from the watchful eyes of the parents. It become utmost important for the school to understand the importance of having a professionally managed medical support system for the students under their care!!! any school not having a robust mechanism to address the emergency and other health need of a child is doing a criminal negligence .
