Chronic illness or allergy
If a student has a chronic disease or allergy that requires an emergency dose of life-saving medication to be kept on his person at all times, a statement from the attending physician on the type of medication, dosage, and method of administration should be provided for the school nurse. Parents may wish to leave a second dose of this medication in the custody of the school nurse. Parents are asked to call the school nurse if they have any questions about the administration of student medications.
Students who have fevers should be kept at home for at least 24 hours after fever subsides without the aid of a fever reducing medication.
Be sure to keep emergency contact phone numbers and information up-to-date so that we can reach you if your child is ill or injured.
Students who are ill must see the nurse first before leaving school. As a matter of routine, the nurse will contact parents before sending a student home (includes students 18 or older). Questions about clinic procedures and expectations should be directed to the nurse. Student should not call their parents on their own phone.
