The school year is a busy time and we want to do our best to maintain a safe environment. Remember that the little things count as your child grows and develops self reliance. When making daily choices for simple things like eating healthy foods, having a water bottle available to stay hydrated and what to wear to school, please consider school guidelines.
To help prevent the flu and other viruses, we encourage children to:
-Wash their hands frequently
-Not touch their eyes, nose or mouth
-Cover their mouth and nose when sneezing and coughing and only use tissues once
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick
-Do not share drinks and food with others
Frequently Asked Questions:
My child feels sick, should he/she stay home?
Please see the Illness Guidelines below.
What if your child needs to take medication during school hours?
Prescription and over the counter (OTC) medication can be administered at school by the nurse. The Medication Authorization form will need to be signed by the parent/guardian and completed by your pediatrician. Medication should be dropped off to the clinic in the original packaging and prescription medication should have a label attached. OTC medications include Chap-stick, sunscreen, cough drops, antacids, calamine lotion, Tylenol, Benadryl, Motrin etc. Students are not allowed to keep any OTC or prescription medications in their backpacks or desk. Our school does not keep stock medications. Please see our medication policy and forms for prescription medication and OTC medication below.
What if your child has a life-threatening allergy?
Please call the nurse to discuss and complete related forms below.
What if my child has headlice?
If the presence of lice or nits are detected on your child, please check ALL family members, and then call your pediatrician for recommendations for treatment. There are several over the counter options for treatment. If lice are detected while at school, a parent will be notified, and the student will need to be picked up. The student must have been treated and be checked at the nurse’s office prior to returning to class. Please contact the clinic with any questions.
