Just a few reminders and healthful hints from the school nurses...
Please fill out all information forms carefully and completely. Please provide cell phone numbers, additional contact names, and phone numbers on a separate sheet of paper if needed. Please provide all appropriate health information pertaining to your child. Information will be shared with staff members in order to safely care for your child. Be sure to include information such as diabetes, asthma, seizures, severe allergies, as well as any medication information.
In the event your child needs to take prescription medication while at school, please be sure to have the Request for Administration of Medication by School Personnel form completed by the child's physician and parents. Forms are available in the school offices and through the links on the right hand side of this page.
Nonprescription medication such as Advil, Tylenol, cough drops, etc. may be administered to students if the parent/guardian sends in the medication (in original container) along with written permission for the medication to be given. Dosages cannot exceed the manufacturer's recommendations for age and weight. We must have a note from the doctor in order to give a dose of medication that is different than the dose stated on the bottle. All medications must be sent in the original container.

Prior to the start of each school year, please be sure to contact your school nurse and child's teacher to discuss any health concerns your child has, including severe allergies, seizures, diabetes, asthma, and current medications. During the school year, please be sure to update the school nurse and teacher of any new or changing medical conditions or medications.
Any student with a temperature of 100° or higher, vomiting, diarrhea, or signs and symptoms of a possible communicable disease, will be sent home. Please keep students home until they remain fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of medication and are free of vomiting or diarrhea symptoms for 24 hours prior to returning to school. All children with suspicious rashes must be excluded from school until the rash has been determined non-contagious by a doctor.
State-mandated health screenings (such as vision and hearing) will be completed during the school year. Please contact your school nurse if you have concerns regarding your child and the screening process.
