MEDICATION AND INJURIES

  • If medication MUST be given at school, our policy states that the school may dispense medication only from its original container. Parents must bring the medication to the school and complete a medical authorization form. This applies to prescription and over-the-counter medications, including cough drops and sunscreen. All medication must be kept in the office.

  • If your child receives an injury at school, we will fill out an incident form and notify parents or guardians of the injury. We will provide care for minor injuries at school. If the injury is more serious, we will provide care for the child and immediately contact the parent or guardian. If we cannot reach parents, we will call the other numbers you list in case of emergency. It is very important that we have up-to-date information on your child's emergency contact form. If we cannot reach anyone, an ambulance will be called if necessary.

  • Students should remain home if they have the following symptoms in the past 24 hours:fever, vomiting, diarrhea, eye infections, severe headache, persistent cough, earache, rashes, communicable diseases (head lice, flu, etc.). Students should be "fever-free" and/or "diarrhea-free" for 24 hours prior to returning to class. Please contact your child's teacher of the reason for the absence.

  • Please notify the school if your child has a communicable illness such as conjunctivitis, the flu, chicken pox, or if they have head lice.
