Students that need medication at school, prescription or non-prescription, must be administered according to the school district medication administration policy. Parents must bring properly labeled medication containers to the school and have a Consent Form for the Administration of Medication During the School Day completed and signed by parent/guardian, health care provider (prescription medication) and the Licensed School Nurse in order for their child to receive medication at school.
If a student becomes ill during the school day, the student is instructed to obtain a hall pass from the classroom teacher to the Health Service Office for assistance and further evaluation. If it becomes necessary for the student to leave school, Health Service Staff will contact parent/guardian in order for the student to be excused. Students leaving the building without parent/guardian permission will be considered unexcused.
If student has had a fever of 100 degrees or more, the student should stay home until they have been fever free without use of medication for 24 hours. If a student has vomited or had diarrhea, the student should stay home until 24 hours after their last episode. If student has any rash that may be disease-related or you do not know the cause, check with your physician before sending the student to school. If student is ill, please call the school daily to report the illness. If student has a harsh cough that keeps him/her awake at night or interrupts other students, consider keeping at home.
The Health Services team works to optimize student health and promote consistent student school attendance in order to maximize student learning and school success.
