The Chesney Clinic will provide first aid if students become ill or injured during the day. The Clinic will contact the parent/guardian if the situation requires their immediate attention or in case of medical emergency. Please make sure that all parent contact information is up-to-date with Chesney. Clinic workers supervise the administration of medications, take temperatures, and administer emergency first aid when appropriate.
Taking medications during school hours is discouraged. Parents are asked to arrange medication schedules so that it is not necessary for medication to be taken at school. However, if the physician recommends such administration, then the parent must complete the Administration of Medication Request Form and return it to the school. The form should be updated yearly. Medication must be in the original prescription container, brought to school by the parent/guardian and must be housed in the Clinic. Students may not have medications in their possession or share these medications with others.
Students may NOT transport medication to school.
The clinic does not supply acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil), etc. For students who may need these medicines, parents will need to provide them to the Clinic with appropriate forms. Students requiring ANY medication at school must have a parent bring the medication and documentation to the Clinic (this includes Ibuprofen, Tylenol, eye drops, cough drops, etc.). All medication is stored and administered by the clinic worker. If students need to be given medication, we cannot give it to them unless we have written permission.
Medication must be kept in the clinic in the original container. If the medication is to be administered for more than one day, an Administration of Medication Request Form must be completed. Students may not have over-the-counter medications in their possession and may not share medications of any kind with fellow students.
