Medications

Students are not allowed to carry medications on their person except inhalers, and that is only with a doctor's note on file in the nurse's office. These notes need to be renewed each year.

Students may not carry over-the-counter medications such as cough drops, or sore throat lozenges. The nurse may only give these to students. If a student has them at school, they need to drop them off to the nurse at the beginning of the day.

Over the counter medication forms may be filled out by a parent anytime throughout the school year for the nurse to be able to give acetaminophen, ibuprofen, antacids or Benadryl without calling a parent. Forms can be found to the left under Medical Forms.

Physical Education (PE)

PE excuses may be given with a parent note for a total of three days per semester, any longer will require a doctor's note.

Illness

Please remind your students to come to the Health Office to be assessed by the nurse if not feeling well. Do not have them text or call you first. By following this procedure, it allows the nurse to monitor any illnesses that are prevalent in the school community. There are many ways to help your child feel better without having them go home. If they need to go home the nurse will call you. We appreciate your help with this matter.

The challenges kids and families face today are complex and have the potential to devastate lives and derail futures. It is extremely important to work together to protect the kids in our community. The average age a kid will first try drugs is 13. Studies indicate that people who reach 21 without engaging in destructive behaviors are likely to never do so, which is why we passionately educate about current trends, warning signs, and the long-term impact of destructive behaviors. We believe proactive prevention on the part of kids, families, and communities are the answer to long-term success.
