WHEN TO KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME
Students who are ill should not be sent to school to prevent spread of illness amongst other students. Students with temperatures at or above 99.7 degrees will be sent home or should be kept home. They must be fever free for
24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications before returning to school. They also must have no
diarrhea or vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school.
Students with food allergies that requires food substitution or food to be omitted from their diet will need to have a 19B Meal Modification Form completed by their physician yearly and returned to the school. Form 19C will need to be filled out by your physician if your child's food allergies are discontinued. Your child's allergy information is shared on a need-to-know basis in order to keep your child safe at school.
MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION GUIDELINES
If your child needs a prescription medication administered at school, a form needs to be signed by the doctor and the parent.
If it is an over-the-counter medication (ex. Tylenol, Ibuprofen), only the parent needs to sign the form.
If your child carries an inhaler, the medication form needs to be filled out by the doctor.
Grades 6-12 students can carry their inhalers on them.
K-5 students need to keep their inhalers in the nurses office.
NEW KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS
We are pleased to welcome our newest students! Below is a checklist for parents to complete before your child enters Kindergarten. Immunizations, birth certificate, and health assessment (filled out by your child's doctor), for example, are State Requirements so it is important to get this paperwork filled out in a timely manner and returned to the school. We look forward to caring for your child!
