Health and Safety

NUIA Academy recognizes that in order to enhance the process of learning and develop the characters of its students, they must be in an environment that is safe and healthy. Thus, Nur- Ul- Islam Academy strives to provide such a setting on campus for its students.

The administration of NUIA places emphasis on its health and safety program. The school has taken all the necessary steps to assure the safety of its students and staff by providing a safe environment in which the students can enjoy learning.

A designated room in the administration building is used to accommodate the clinic. Students’ records are kept in the office and reviewed annually. Health records for the faculty and staff are also on file. Emergency information about students is maintained which include telephone numbers of parents and additional contacts should parents not be available.

First aid kits are available in all the lower school classes.

First Aid training is held periodically and most of the staff and faculty are trained in First aid and Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

The following steps are to be followed to maintain the health of the students of Nur- Ul- Islam Academy.

Local and state requirements for immunizations and physicals are to be adhered to strictly.

  • Screening for vision, hearing, and scoliosis are to be done annually.
  • Staff and students with any contagious illnesses are advised not to attend school.
  • Parents/Guardians are informed in writing if there is an outbreak of any communicable/contagious illnesses or health problems, such as chicken pox, lice, etc.
  • If during the course of a school day, a child becomes sick, the child is taken to the office.
  • In the office, the following procedures are followed:
    1. The nurse or Office personnel examine the child.
    2. Severity of illness is determined.
