Medical Information

Medication

 A “Request for Medication” form MUST BE COMPLETED and filed in the school office in order for staff to administer any medication including “over the counter” drugs.  A physician must complete the medication form for prescription drugs.  Medications must be brought to school by the parent or guardian of the student in its original container with current information.  It is not to be taken to the classroom or kept by the child.

3. Must carry a prescription label with the child's name, drug identity, dosage instructions, doctor's name, and prescription date.

4. The prescription must be current.

5. A note, dated and signed by the parent, must accompany the medication giving the child's name, dosage amounts, specific dosage times, and other instructions if necessary.

6. Medication will be given by school personnel.

 
Please contact the School Nurse if you have any

questions or concerns about your child’s medical needs. 


 Sleep

Children work hard while they are at school.  If they do not get the necessary amount of sleep, it reduces their ability to do their best work.  Although sleep requirements vary, most children need 10 to 12 hours of sleep nightly.  A well rested child is more alert, completes better school work, and gets along better with others.

Emergency Notification-

If you have any changes in your address or contact information, please notify the office immediately by calling, coming in, or sending a note with your child.  It is very important we have current contact information in the event of an emergency.
