Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

Dispensing Medications
  • Students are not permitted to carry any medications on them or keep them in their book bags.
  • All medications must be in their original containers, must come to the nurse’s office, and be accompanied by a  note from their parents.  Notes should include the student’s name, name of  the medication, reason for the medication, time to be taken and, the time the  last dose of medication was given.  Medication not in their original  container will not be administered.
  • A responsible adult must bring in all  medications that are controlled substances such as prescription pain medicine  and medicines used in the treatment of Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD).
  •  Ask your pharmacist for extra medicine bottles with pharmacy labels if your medication has to be taken at home  and at school. All inhalers must be in their boxes with the pharmacy label. Some  pharmacists will print an extra label for the inhaler itself if you ask.
Contacting Parents

Every effort is made to contact parents/guardians when a student becomes ill or injured at school.  Please make sure that the school has accurate phone numbers so we can reach you or another responsible adult in case of an emergency.  Please provide us with updated contact information when applicable.
When Should Your Child Be Kept Home From School?
  • If your child is vomiting or has diarrhea the night before school or the   
    morning prior to school.
  • If your child has a fever, keep them home until they are fever free for 24 hours without medication.
  • If your child has a headache, cough, sore throat, or congestion severe enough to interfere with attention to school work.
  • If your child has flare-ups of asthma, that would make it difficult to work in school
  • If your child has red eyes with itchy, thick drainage, or crust on eyelids.
 Following these guidelines will go a long way to helping your child recover more quickly and protect the other students and staff from becoming ill.  As a reminder to parents, please don’t forget to provide a doctor’s note for your child upon their return to school when absent due to illness.
Student Health Forms

Please provide copies of all yearly physical exams and updated immunization records for your child to the nurse’s office.  You can obtain copies of the immunization/physical forms on the district website.
Lost and Found

Please remind your child to check the lost and found daily to recover lost items.  The nurse’s office cannot store all lost items.   Please label all clothing and other belongings so they may be returned to the rightful owners if found.
