Student Health

Medicine

To administer medicine, we must have a special release form filled out by a physician.  You may obtain these forms from our school office or our website.  We must also have the medicine in the original packaging.

Please do not send your child to school if he/she has a fever, lice, pink eye, or other obvious illness.

First Aid

We have basic first aid supplies for minor scratches and scrapes. Parents will be contacted to assume responsibility for decisions regarding serious injury or illness.

We do take temperature readings and in the event of a fever, you will be contacted to come for your child.  IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE ARE ABLE TO REACH SOMEONE IN CASE OF EMERGENCY; BE SURE WE HAVE CURRENT PHONE NUMBERS WHERE YOU CAN BE REACHED.

Lice

Hair Lice can be a common problem in elementary school.  Should nits or live lice be detected, you will be called to take your child home. Your child may return to school when the hair is free of nits.  Upon return, an adult must accompany your child to the office for a check before re-admittance.

Nurse

We have a wonderful school nurse.  We share her with 2 other schools, so she is not always here.  However, call the school and leave her a message if you have questions.

Immunizations

Students must be in compliance with all state laws with regard to immunizations and health assessments.

Healthy Habits help keep your family well.

Handwashing is the single most important action that one can take to prevent the onset of illness.

Cover your cough to stop the spread of germs that make you and others sick.
