The clinic will provide first aid if students become ill or injured during the day. The clinic will contact the parent or guardian if the situation requires your immediate attention or is a medical emergency. Please make sure that all parent contact information is up-to-date with Dacula ES. 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 bring it to the school with the medicine. It 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.
