What do I need to do if my child requires medications?
Medication and illness are always to be taken seriously. If your child becomes sick or needs daily medication there are guidelines that must be followed. Here are the steps to insure your child is ready to go to the health room if the need ever arises.
If your child requires medication to be taken at school, the parent must hand deliver the medication to the Health Room. Children may not bring in medication themselves.
All medication must be delivered by the parent or guardian in the original container with a doctor's prescription. Parents will then sign a consent form with the information needed by the nurse or nurse assistant.
If your child is sick and taking medications at home the health room should be informed. This is vital information in case your child becomes sick while at school.
Any medical allergies or special care instructions need to be placed on the student emergency card. These cards are sent home at the beginning of the school year. If at any time your child develops an allergy during the school year, you need to call the nurse or nurse assistant and let them know so it can be added to their record.
