    A clinic worker is available during school hours to care for the health and welfare of the students. 

    Please provide the school with a signed clinic card (available at the clinic) listing current/past medical issues, and all possible contact phone numbers, in case of an emergency. 

    If your child suffers from any health-related issues, a "Health Management Plan" (available at the clinic or through the corresponding links below) must be maintained on file in the clinic. These forms will provide us with all the medical information needed to best care for your child while at school. These health management plans must be renewed every year in case something has changed in your child's health care.

    Please, keep your child at home from school if he/she
     
    • Has a fever of 101 or 100.4 with symptoms. Children must be fever-free for 24 hours, without the help of fever-reducing medication, like Tylenol (Acetaminophen) or Motrin (Ibuprofen), before they can return to school.
    • Recurring vomiting, diarrhea or severe abdominal pain.
    • Persistent cough, disruptive to class.

Medical Forms

  • Medication Request
    All prescribed and over the counter medications must be accompanied by an Administration of Medication Request. Medications prescribed by your doctor must be stored in the labeled prescription bottle when brought to the school. Over the counter medications must be in the original containers. Medications brought to school in envelopes, baggies, etc., WILL NOT be administered.

    Asthma
    If your student suffers from asthma and needs to use an inhaler at school, please complete the Asthma Management Plan and Medication Form and bring it to the clinic with the medication.  All inhalers must be kept in the clinic.  If you want your student to carry his/her inhaler during school hours, we need to have a doctor's note or his/her signature on the Asthma Management Plan to keep on file in the clinic.

    Allergies
    If your student suffers from allergies, please send the Allergy Emergency Plan Form to school with all the information.
