School Nurse’s Tips For Parents (pdf)
It is imperative each student have a signed health information and over the counter medication form on file. This information allows us to keep your child healthy and safe at school. We do need a new one each school year as health information can change frequently.
Each student is required to provide completed medical forms to the school prior to the first day of classes. Printed forms were sent home but you can also find links to download these files below. Please fill out all forms and return to school as soon as you can.
All students must be up to date with current records on file by the first day of school. If we do not get the up to date records your child will not be allowed to attend school. Thank you for your prompt response and your continued interest in keeping our school free of communicable disease! Every time your child receives immunizations please bring a copy of the updated record to school or ask your health care provider to fax the records (attention “Nurse”) to the school.
Students are NOT allowed to carry medication to or from school, including refills. If your child needs medicine during the school day, a parent/guardian must bring the medication to school and have a medication permission form on file. Students are allowed to carry cough drops but please instruct them not to share with other students.
LIFE THREATENING ALLERGY
If your child has an allergy and requires an EpiPen, we must have an allergy action plan on file. Your doctor may have a form in his/her office or you can print the form below and take it to the doctor’s office. You need to provide the school nurse with a 2 pack EpiPen for your child. One of the EpiPens will stay in the nurses office and the other will stay in your child’s classroom.
On the first day of school you receive a medical packet from the School Nurse. All pages are also available below in PDF format. Please fill out all forms and return to school.
