Medications given at school require a medication authorization form to be completed by the physician and the parent(s) for prescription medications. Parents will be notified when refills are needed. Over-the-counter medications must be signed-in by the parent and cleared by the RN.
All over-the-counter medications left at school must be in a new and unopened bottle. Non-prescription drugs should have written permission, time, and proper dosage for your child. All medications must be delivered to the school by a parent/guardian, and must be in the original container with clear, current instructions. The parent/guardian shall pick up the student's medication at the end of the school year. All medications not picked up will be destroyed.
When it becomes necessary for a child not to participate in P. E. for a period of time due to injury or illness, the parent must provide a note from a physician to that effect to be filed in the school office. If a student is injured off-campus and requires crutches, a wheelchair, or other medical equipment, please contact the nurse’s office.
If a student is sent home from school with a fever of 100.4 or above, the student must remain home for 48 hours. The student must remain fever free without the use of fever-reducing medication.
