Medication administration and transport District Policy
Parents to Transport Medication to and From School
Only those students who have a doctor's order to carry medications may transport their medication to and from school. Parents must transport all medication to and from school unless they have the doctors written, to carry medication, on file at the school. You may download a Medication Form from our district website.
For additional information, please visit our district website to read our medication policy
A doctor signed form must be brought in for all medications, including all OVER THE COUNTER and prescription medications, ointments, eye, ear drops, lotions, jells, sprays, lozenges, etc.
FEVERS, Diarrhea, and Vomiting...
Please remember to keep your child home for 24hrs since the last episode of fever (without fever reducing meds), diarrhea and vomiting before returning to school. Make sure your child is taking solid food for a full 24 hours before returning to school. Please continue to call in the absences as we will continue to keep track of illnesses within our school population.
Nut/Peanut Free Classrooms please
Our cafeteria provides nut/peanut free tables to keep our students with those allergies safe.
Your child may bring in peanut/nuts for lunch and sit at tables other than the nut/peanut free tables.
