If a child becomes ill or injured at school, he/she is to report it to the teacher as soon as possible. If it becomes necessary for a student to be sent home for treatment or there is an emergency, the school nurse will notify the parent. Due to this, please make sure the school nurse has a current phone number at all times.

Please note, if your child has a fever, the temperature should be normal for 24 hours before your child returns to school. If the child vomits after his/her normal bedtime, he/she should stay home the next day. Colds and constant coughing or fever are also reasons that your child should be kept home.

The nurse is frequently asked about giving medications at school. If a physician requires that a student take medicine throughout the school day:

  1. The nurse must have on file a written request from the family physician, in which he/she indicates the medicine, frequency, and dosage of the prescribed medicine.

  2. The nurse must have a written request from the parent to administer the medication, as specified by the family doctor.

  3. The medication must be delivered to the school nurse by a parent/guardian, preferably in a bottle labeled by the pharmacist with the drug name, dosage and frequency as ordered by the physician.

  4. No medicine, either prescription or over-the-counter, should be given to the child to take him/herself.
