The Health Office is available to students from 9:00am until 4:00pm each school day. During school hours, including lunch, students must have a pass from a teacher.
If students require any medication, including asthma inhalers, during school hours, they must have a ‘Physician's Recommendation for Medication’ form and/or ‘Asthma Action Plan’ on file. All oral medications must be kept in the health office. The school nurse will review the physician orders with the student and parent, and then determine if the student may self-carry a rescue inhaler or Epi-Pen.
In order for the school nurse to administer Advil, Motrin, or Tylenol to the student, a current completed ‘Health Information Exchange Consent’ form must be on file.
All requests to excuse a student from PE should be taken to the Health Office. A parent may excuse for up to three consecutive days, at which point a physician's note is required.
