Describes the school's policy regarding the notification of parents in the event of an illness or accident and dispensing of medications.
In the case of illness or accident, parents are notified and contacted as described on the emergency cards, which are completed by parents in August, and kept on file. Teachers are not permitted to dispense medication and students may not have medication in their possession while in school. Any medication, which needs to be dispensed, will be done through the school office and clinic. Medication must be clearly marked with the studentís name and specific instructions for dispensing it. A MEDICATION FORM MUST ACCOMPANY THE MEDICATION. These forms may be obtained in the respective school offices.
Each year you will be sent an emergency form for each of your children. BY STATE LAW THE CARDS MUST BE UPDATED YEARLY. WE ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ACCEPT THE PREVIOUS YEARS CARD. Upon receipt, please take the time to completely fill out the cards FOR EACH CHILD and return ASAP. It is imperative to your childís health and safety to have these cards on file. Failure to return by the assigned date will result is asking your children not to attend classes until the card is filed. IF YOUR CHILD IS HIGHLY ALLERGIC OR HAS A SEVERE CONDITION, PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF CLASSES AND ASK THE CHILDíS PHYSICIAN TO PROVIDE THE SCHOOL WITH WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION AND ADVISORY INFORMATION.
