Illnesses & Medication

 

Please contact the School Office immediately if your child has contracted any communicable disease or condition that could be contagious like head lice, pink eye, impetigo, whooping cough, etc.

 

We require that parents not send children to school who have a fever. A child must be fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to school.

 

Medication:

Any student who requires medication during school hours or after school activities must present the following to school:

  1. Written communication signed by the parent
  2. Prescription medication in the original bottle properly labeled by a registered pharmacist as prescribed by law ( NO OTHER CONTAINERS WILL BE ACCEPTED.)
  3. Non-prescription medication must be in the original container with the student's name on the container (A note from the parent listing dosage to be given must accompany all medications.)
  4. EpiPens—If a serious allergy exists, parents should provide two EpiPens—one to keep in the School Office and one for the classroom.

 

All medications (prescription and non-prescription) must be administered in the School Office. REMEMBERING TO TAKE MEDICATION IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT.
