Health Information
 
Student Physicals
 

Archbishop John Carroll High School requires a physical examination, including all immunizations, for all new students to Carroll and all 11th-grade students.  Physical forms are due before the first day of school.  Forms may be submitted up to one year prior to the opening of the school term.   Examinations done by a family physician within one year prior to the opening of the school term are acceptable by state regulations.

Please keep the school nurse informed of any medical changes, treatments, or immunizations that your child has received so that his/her health record is current. Up-to-date information is essential in an emergency situation.

The only medications that are on hand in the Health Room for students are acetaminophen (Tylenol), Ibuprofen (Advil/ Motrin), and Tums.  Parental permission must be given before any of these medications can be administered.  Please complete the the Emergency Information Card to give the Health Office permission to administer the above medications.

 

Over the counter medication, other than the ones mentioned above, along with prescription medications, will not be administered in school without specific orders from a physician and a parental signature.

For students who have medication that they self administer (insulin, inhalers, epi-pens, etc.), the following still applies. It must also be noted by the physician that the student is to self administer the medication according to all details that follow.

 

The Medication Administration Form must be completed and should accompany the prescription to be kept on file in the Health Office for the current school year.  Medication should be brought to the school nurse in the original container that includes the following information on the label: student’s name, date prescription was filled, medication name, time and dosage to be administered, and the name of the prescribing physician.

 

All medication paperwork must be updated each year.

 

At the end of the school year, remaining medications should be picked up before the last day of school, otherwise they will be destroyed in the presence of a school administrator.

Please notify the school nurse of any medication changes.

All students who have asthma and/or allergies, either mild or severe, have the option of keeping a back-up inhaler and/or epi-pen in the Health Office.  This is advisable because students might get separated from their medications.  This can happen even to the most responsible student.  If you wish to have an extra inhaler and/or epi-pen in the Health Room in case of an emergency, please turn in the proper paperwork and medication to the school nurse.

Diabetics should also have extra supplies in school just in case the student runs out or is separated from his/her supplies. Please contact the school nurse to discuss this individually.

Parents whose child has specific health concerns are advised to schedule an appointment or phone conversation with the school nurse before the start of school.

Please be advised that if you choose to disclose your child’s medical information to his or her teachers, there are two options for communicating this information:

  1. You may notify your child’s teachers directly.
  2. You can notify the nurse by email or phone and have the nurse pass this information on to each of your child’s teachers.

Because of legitimate concerns over issues of confidentiality expressed in the HIPPA and FERPA guidelines established by the federal government, you have the right to decide how the school is to handle your child’s personal medical records. There is no blanket policy set by the school to alert teachers of students’ medical issues.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at 610-688-7610. 

Please complete and submit the required health forms prior to the start of school to:

PowerSchool

Archbishop John Carroll High School utilizes PowerSchool, which allows students and parents to access and view academic progress. Archbishop John Carroll has enrolled all students in PowerSchool. Teachers utilize PowerSchool to post grades and progress notices throughout the school year.

 

Parents/Guardians are given their own account linked to their child(s) account, in order to monitor academic and disciplinary progress. We encourage parents/guardians to use this as an additional tool in keeping up with their child's academic and disciplinary standing. This information is provided to all new parents in August. All Progress Reports and failure warnings will be given via PowerSchool. It is Archbishop Carroll’s expectation that parents/guardians closely monitor their child's progress via PowerSchool. Parents/Guardians can check the school calendar for dates of Progress Reports.

 

Once you receive your Powerschool welcome letter, you can create your own parent account. Click HERE for instructions on how to create your PowerSchool account.

 

If you have questions about PowerSchool please contact Mr. William Gennaro.

Transportation

 

Centrally located, students make their way smoothly to and from Archbishop Carroll’s Radnor location in a variety of ways. Some commute by car, getting dropped off by parents or via carpool with upperclassmen from their neighborhoods. Others take SEPTA buses or regional rail trains, where we have a shuttle waiting to take students to the Archbishop Carroll every morning (and back at the end of the day).


Others take school buses from their hometowns. 21 buses transport students every day to and from Carroll. There are busing options from Philadelphia and its neighboring Pennsylvania counties (Chester, Montgomery and Delaware).  

 

Busing

The following school districts bus students directly to Archbishop Carroll.  Students who reside in these districts are encouraged to contact their districts for more information.  Busing is available, through a private busing company, for students residing in the Manayunk/Roxborough/Andorra sections of Philadelphia as well as Chester School District.  

Public Transportation
 

Philadelphia students who use public transportation are eligible to receive a weekday student pass for use in the city for any bus, trolley or subway service. Service does not cover SEPTA Regional Rail; however, you may upgrade your Weekday Student Pass for a Student Regional Rail Pass for approximately $5 per week at any train station.

Students residing outside of Philadelphia are eligible to purchase discounted weekly Student Regional Rail passes directly from the Prep. These passes are valid on all SEPTA transportation including bus, trolly and subway. Transportation is available from Suburban Station.

Click here for more information on Regional Rail.

Click here for the general Septa site.

Car
 
Many Carroll students drive to school. Archbishop Carroll provides lots and space for all junior and senior cars.
Inclement Weather
 
Dismissal Information During the school year, there may be times when Archbishop Carroll will close as a result of weather related conditions. Archbishop Carroll is serviced by multiple school districts and the decision to have a weather related early dismissal will be made by the school districts, and students will be dismissed in accordance with their district decision. The students will be transported by their school districts at the time determined by the buses arriving at Archbishop Carroll. If it is determined that student drivers should be dismissed at a time earlier than their school district dismissal you will receive notification via School Messenger. Archbishop Carroll encourages parents to visit jcarroll.org for emergency closing information. In the event that school may be closed because of an emergency or because of inclement weather, parents will be sent a message through School Messenger. If your student drives to school or is driven to school, parents should have completed the appropriate form to inform the school of their requested transportation arrangements in the event of a weather related early dismissal.
