Nurse's Office Policies
MEDICATIONS:
Prescription and over the counter medication requiring administration during school hours will be dispensed by school personnel if the medicine is provided in the original bottle with specific instructions, including name of child, medication name, amount and time to be taken. A signed district consent form must accompany the medication. Long-term medication (any medication to be administered longer then two weeks) requires physician and parental district consent form to administer. Students may not carry medications. Students may carry asthma inhalers and epi pens with completed district consent forms on file in the nurse’s office. All orders must be updated at the beginning of each school year. 

Parents should feel free to come to school to administer non-prescription medicine to your child as needed. 

Medicine sent to school should be limited to that which is required to be given during school hours. Medicine prescribed for three times a day should be given at home before school, after school and at bedtime, unless otherwise ordered by the doctor (i.e. with meals). 

Parents must pick up medications on or before the last day of school. Those not picked up will be disposed of.
 
ILLNESS AND INJURY:
First aid is provided at school by certified personnel for injuries or illness occurring at school only. Injuries that occur at home should be dealt with at home. Serious injuries that may require further medical care will be referred to the parents. 

A child having a temperature of 100.0 degrees or more will not be allowed to stay in school. If your child is ill in the morning, please do no send him/her to school. If his/her temperature is 100.0 degrees or more, medication to control fever is NOT available at school. The child should remain at home until the temperature has been below 100.0 degrees with out medication for 24 hours.

EMERGENCIES:
It is the parent’s responsibility to provide the school with phone numbers changes and Emergency contacts as they occur. It is imperative that we have numbers where we can reach a parent or someone who can act in his/her behalf should an emergency arise. If a child’s illness or injury has the potential for being life threatening, we will call the appropriate EMS unit for treatment or transfer to a medical facility. The parent will be responsible for any and all charges. Every effort will be made to reach the parent.
 
PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS:
Personal care products are available to girls in the Clinic
 
HEALTH CONCERNS/MEDICAL PROBLEMS:
If your child has a medical condition/allergy that school staff need to be aware of it is imperative that you contact the School Nurse @ the beginning of each school year, so that these conditions get communicated to the necessary staff.
