Please inform the school nurse of any medical conditions that may affect your student throughout the school day. (Asthma, ADHD/ADD, allergies, diabetes, physical disabilities, seizure activity, surgeries, etc.)
The State Law requires immunizations to be current for admission to school. Please provide the school nurse with a copy of your child's updated vaccine record anytime your child receives a new vaccine.
All medication must be brought to and picked up at the clinic by a parent or guardian. Students may NOT carry medication to and from school. Any prescription medication brought in must be in the original container with the pharmacy/dosage labels present. Over the counter medications may NOT be kept in the clinic longer than 10 days. If over the counter medication is needed longer than 10 days, a doctor's note will be required.
Reasons a child will get sent home include but are not limited to:
-Temperature of 100 degrees or above
-2 or more COVID-19 symptoms
-Red eye with purulent discharge or crusting
-Open, draining lesion
*Students must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications before returning to school.
*Students should not return to school until they have gone 24 hours without vomiting.
*Students with diarrheal illness must remain home until diarrhea free for 24 hours without the use of diarrhea-suppressing medications.
*Students must be free of lice in order to return to school and accompanied by a parent or guardian to the nurse's office upon returning to school in order to be cleared for re-entry into the classroom.
Change of clothes:
It is highly encouraged to keep a change of clothes for your child in his or her backpack at all times. Often little ones do not make it to the restroom on time and any student can spill their lunch or have a bloody nose. (Clothing donations are always welcome!)
Please make sure that all vaccines are up to date and that copies have been turned into the clinic before the first day of school. Medications will not be accepted without all required signed medication administration forms.
