Medicines, of any kind, must be hand delivered, by the parent or guardian, to the school nurse. The parent or guardian must fill out a medication release form as well.
"As needed" medications, including Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and rescue inhalers, must be brought to the school nurse in a pharmacy-labeled container, which clearly indicates the doctor's orders for dosing. Our policy requires that an asthma action plan be provided for rescue inhalers also.
Please understand that your child must be fever free for a full 24 hours without the aid of medication -- before returning to school.
Children experiencing a fever of 100.0 or higher, vomiting, and/or with diarrhea should remain at home.
The nurse is able to give behavior medication and other medications that are prescribed four times per day. (So, if a child has an antibiotic that needs to be given THREE times per day, it needs to be done before school, when child gets home, and at bedtime.)
Students who are in third grade and above can have their inhalers in their backpacks.
One more thing... ALLstudents (K-4) need to keep a complete change of clothes in their backpacks in case of accidents, spills, or finding puddles on the playground.
