HEALTH SERVICES AND SCHOOL FORMS
1. A student who feels ill should stay at home. Cooperation on everyone’s part will keepour health at the best level possible. If, in the opinion of school officials, a student does not seem physically fit to remain in school, parent(s) will be requested to comefor their child(ren). Parents are asked to furnish the school with the name, address, and telephone number of a person with whom the child may be left in an emergencyin case the parents cannot be reached. If a child has any of the following problems, the child should not come to school:
Nausea and/or vomiting
Students will be dismissed for health related concerns at the discretion of theschool nurse. Students who present to the Health Office with the above symptoms
will be dismissed. Students may return to school after an illness when they have been symptom free for 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing medication.
Good hand washing is the most important thing everyone can do to preventspreading germs and illness.
2. The school nurse is available on a daily basis for assessment and counseling regarding health issues. Students should come during non-academic times, except in
an emergency situation. Students who become ill during the school day must see thenurse for dismissal. The nurse will make arrangements with a parent or emergencycontact for dismissal.
Please note at the elementary school level children are expected to go outside for brief play periods. These play periods are supervised and occur only in suitable
weather. When returning to school after an illness, the student should be well enough to participate in all aspects of the school program. Please DO NOT request
that students be kept in during recess periods. If the child is not well enough to go outside, he/she should not be in school.
MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL
Written permission from the doctor and a parent/guardian is required for daily prescription medications, which must be in the original, properly-labeled medication
bottle. If medications are prescriptions for three times per day, they can be givenat home in the morning, when the student gets home from school, and at bedtime,
thus eliminating a school-day dose. We do provide some over-the-countermedications which are included in the standing orders from our district medical
