If your child will require medications at school, we must have medication orders signed by the doctor and the parent/guardian and medication in the original container before we can administer medication at school. Only medication which cannot be given at home will be given at school.
All over-the-counter medicines (OTC) such as cough drops, cough syrups, antihistamines, creams, lotions, sprays, and pain relievers are not allowed at school unless accompanied by a signed written physician's order giving specific instructions for administration and a signed parent permission form. The OTC medication will be kept in the nurse's office under the same security as prescription medication.
No medications will be given unless there is a prescription label on medicine and a signed consent form in office. Medicine will only be given to follow doctor’s order.
All students in grades Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade will have their vision and hearing tested. We will only notify those that are referred to see a doctor of results.
**Please notify the school nurse of any medical condition changes, or restrictions to activity immediately.
