Health Services Medications in School
All prescribed medication or over-the-counter medication needs to be checked into the health office with a signed doctor’s medication authorization form. Parents must sign district paperwork when checking in medications at school. The check-in process usually takes about 5-10 minutes.
Medication cannot be sent to school with your child or in your child’s backpack.
Please note that our GOAL is to keep all students in school, healthy and ready to learn. Headaches or menstrual cramps are frequent health complaints. Over-the-counter medications can be given with completed doctor’s forms to provide pain relief and prevent missed school. Contact the district nurse for more information. Every child must have their own supply of medication in the original container because the health office does not keep any medications on hand. Please check to make sure the medication is not expired.
Health Services Allergies
If your child has a severe Allergy, you will be given an Anaphylaxis Health Care Plan. Please sign and have it filled out and signed by your child’s doctor. Please check in allergy medicine with the Health Assistant or front office. A Self-Carry contract must be completed with the Allergy Health Care Plan if you, the nurse, and your doctor agree that your child can carry the Epinephrine device. If your child has an allergy and you DO NOT want to have medicine at school, please contact the school district nurse consultant.
