What are the medicine policies at school?
Any and all medicine (prescription and non-prescription) MUST be brought to school by a parent in its original packaging and/or prescription container. The times on prescription bottles are the only times that the medicine can be given out. The Health Room Assistant will count out the medicine with you and you will initial a log to verify the amount. Please remember to check in any medicines with the Health Room Assistant. “Authorization to Administer Medication” forms must be completed by parent or guardian. The Health Room Assistant is on duty from 7:30 a.m. -2:00 p.m.
No over the counter medications may be with the students and MUST be turned into the health room. (example... tums, cough drops, etc.)
How do I inform the school of my child’s special health conditions?
If your child has an illness or life-threatening condition, a medical alert form must be on file at school. These forms are available in the office. Examples: asthma, severe allergies, heart condition, etc.
What if my child has a medical emergency?
Parents will be notified at once. Should your child have to be transported to the hospital by ambulance, school personnel will remain with your child until you arrive at the hospital. It is imperative that you keep telephone numbers and addresses up-to-date. Notify the school of any changes.
