A few friendly reminders:
As a convenience to parents, a supply of acetaminophen and ibuprofen are kept in the clinic for administration to students as needed. If you would like the school nurse or other trained and authorized staff member to administer these medications to your student, you need only to sign the appropriate form and return it to the school clinic. If your student requires any other over the counter medication, or if your student requires a dose other than what is provided by the clinic, a new form must be completed and a new, unopened bottle of the medication must be supplied to the clinic by a parent.
If your student must take prescription medication while at school, an authorization must be completed by both the parent, and the prescribing medical provider. All medications must be brought to school by parents in the original container with the original pharmacy label.
******STUDENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO TRANSPORT MEDICATIONS OF ANY KIND TO THE SCHOOL!******
Forms can be found in the school clinics and on the website.
Tdap and Meningitis immunizations:
All students entering the 7th grade are required to have Tdap and meningitis immunizations and 12th graders are required to have a booster of the meningitis vaccine.
Students entering kindergarten must also have all immunization records up to date by the first day of school in August.
Please send the official immunization record to the nurse by the first day of school.
