Our administration knows that learning and health, whether social, emotional or physical, goes hand in hand with being able to learn. In addition to immunization compliance and providing support for chronically ill students, we are available to respond in emergencies and for all the minor bumps and bruises incurred on the campus. We also evaluate students who are feeling ill to see if they need to go home, or if can we support them with treatment and/or rest to make it through the school day. In addition, we help coordinate contact with teachers if a student is going to be out for an extended time due to illness, or surgery.
Students are allowed to carry over-the-counter medications after completing the Medication Administration Form. Medication needs to be in original packaging (bottle/container). Students may not share any medication with other students.
If your student is on a prescription medication, those medications are kept in the nurse’s office and will be dispensed, as ordered, by your physician.
