When your child needs medication at school
All prescriptions and over the counter medication require a physician authorization form signed by the parent and the physician PRIOR to the student beginning his or her medication at school. A new form must be signed and turned in each school year, one form per medication. All medications must be in the original container and labeled with the student's name. Students are not allowed to carry ANY medication with the exception of an inhaler with the proper physician's form. Any prescribed medication needs to be dispensed from the health office. For your convenience, you may download and print the Physicians Medication Authorization form.
**ALL MEDICATION MUST BE PICKED UP ON THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. A REMINDER LETTER OR EMAIL WILL BE SENT OUT. ANY MEDICATION THAT IS NOT PICKED UP WILL BE DISCARDED.**
Use this form for any crutches, casts, splints or physical limitations at school.
Required for Kindergarten Entry
Use for Diastat prescription only.
For the use of any over the counter or prescription medication at school.
Keeping your child at home
“Healthy students learn better.” Although it is important for students to be at school every day the health staff would like to review the general guidelines for students coming to school. Please take a moment to read the following protocols.
Students should not be sent to school with the symptoms listed below:
• Fever (100 or above)
• Nausea with or without vomiting
• Pain that is not controlled
• Flu symptoms
• Infectious Conjunctivitis (pink eye), this requires a physician’s visit
Students may return to school:
• Fever free for 24 hours
• No vomiting for the last 24 hours
• Infectious Conjunctivitis (pink eye) when antibiotic treatment has been at least 24 hours and symptoms have subsided
Students with injuries requiring the use of wheelchairs, crutches, splints, braces or casts require a physician’s note and indication when they are able to resume regular activities. These students will be restricted from contact sports and other designated activities on the playground.
Due to unexpected illnesses and emergencies, current work, home and cell phone numbers are important to our school. Please take the time to update any changes in your personal phone numbers and emergency contact numbers.
Thank you for helping keep our school healthy and safe.
No Shots? No Records? No School
If your child is unimmunized due to religious, personal, or medical reasons, please contact the Health Office. Starting January 1, 2016, exemptions based on personal beliefs, including religious beliefs, are no longer allowed. Children will not be enrolled unless an immunization record is presented and immunizations are up-to-date.* Please refer to http://www.shotsforschool.org/laws/exemptions/ for more information on the new law
