WELCOME BACK!

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year!  Hope everyone had a great summer.  A few reminders for the upcoming school year:

 

  • Medications MUST be brought to the health office by an adult.  Children are not allowed to carry any medications to school themselves.
  • If your child is going to carry “rescue medications” (i.e. epi-pen, inhaler), his/her physician must fill out an authorization form to do so.  The Health Office must be aware that the child has a medication with him/her.  Forms are available in the Health Office.
  • If you are going to bring any medications for your child to take at school (prescription and non-prescription), a form must be filled out before the medication can be given.  Forms are available online as well as in the Health Office.
  • If your child will be taking any medications daily for more than 4 weeks, a physician’s signature is required.

 

Please inform the Health Office of any changes in your child’s health throughout the year.

 

Please ensure your child’s immunizations are kept up to date.  Flu season will be upon us soon so don’t forget to get those shots!

 

Please keep your children at home if they have been ill with fever, diarrhea or vomiting.  Children must be fever free without fever reducing medications (Tylenol/acetaminophen, Advil/ibuprofen) for 24 hours before returning to school.  Children must also be free from diarrhea and vomiting without medications for 24 hours before returning to school.

 

We are looking forward to a wonderful and healthy year!
