    Immediately notify your principal or supervisor, or go to the campus secretary or nurse. If the injury is life threatening and requires emergency medical treatment, they are to call 911, then call Brenda Nicholson in HR at 972-617-4173. The campus nurse will have a Worker’s Compensation packet to be completed and if the injury requires minor treatment, the employee will be sent to an appropriate medical provider. ALL accidents must be reported even if medical treatment is not sought.

    The packet will be scanned to brenda.nicholson@redoakisd.org and originals go to the doctor with the employee. (For questions please contact Brenda Nicholson at x4173 ).
