If your child requires medication to be given during the school day, we require written permission from the parent and a signed doctor order from your child's healthcare provider. We cannot give any medications without it, this includes prescription and any over the counter medications.
The health office does not give any over the counter medications in school. You must provide the medication, along with a signed doctor order and parental permission.
All medications must come to school in the original container with your child's name and how to dispense the medication.
Please keep your child home from school if he or she is not feeling well. If your child should vomit during the previous 24 hours, he or she should not come to school the next day.
Children should be fever free without the use of fever reducing medications for a full 24 hours before returning to school.
If your child gets lice, please notify the nurse, your child may return to school after being treated. The nurse will need to check your child's head to make sure he or she is lice free. Please report to the nurses office upon return to school.
The nurse will call home for serious injuries and illnesses. We do not call for every nurse's office visit.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
