Policies on Illness
Students should not attend school if they have a temperature of 100 degress or above or if they have vomited and/or have had diarrhea in the past 12 hours. They must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of analgesics (Tylenol, Advil, etc.) before returning to school. Parents are encouraged to keep the school informed of the status of the student's health by communication with the school nurse. Also, any diagnosis of a communicable disease such as but not limited to: Chicken Pox, Pink Eye, Fifth's Disease, or Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease should be reported to the clinic. Students may return to school after receiving proper treatment and have been fever free for 24 hours. These precautions help prevent the spread of viruses and germs to other students and faculty.
Please remember that all medications brought to school must be accompanied by the appropriate medication form. Prescription medications must have a signed Physician Authorization form. Any over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol, Advil, cough drop, Sudafed, etc. must have an OTC form. These forms are provided on this website in downloadable formate for your convenience.
The only medications a student may carry on them are those designated as emergency-rescue medications. Those medications must be cleared through the clinic along with a special signature form.
