Health & Wellness

We are fully committed to our students’ health. Our health services staff looks after each student’s physical and mental well-being while on our campus.

Administration of Medication

Certain health problems require that students take medication during school hours. Medication must be kept in the health office at all times.

  • Medication must be in its original, properly labeled container. Prescription medication must have the pharmacy label, as this serves as the doctor’s order.
  • A signed consent form giving specific directions for use must accompany medication from the parent.
  • Medication Authorization Consent Form
  • Self Administer Form

Go to School or Stay Home?

We know your child doesn't want to miss out on the fun, but there are times when it is necessary to keep them at home. If your child has any of the following symptoms, please keep them home for their and others safety:

  • Fever
  • Rash of undetermined cause
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Chicken pox
  • Impetigo
  • Ringworm
  • Head lice (unless they have been treated medically or are symptom free)

We will have to send your child home if they display the following symptoms:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever of 100° F or greater

Please be sure to send your child back to school as soon as they are symptom-free and feeling better. Make sure they are fever-free for a period of 24 hours prior to returning to school without taking any fever-reducing medications.

Immunization Information

We will notify parents of continuing students by mail if your child needs additional immunizations before the new school year. State law requires students to complete all required immunizations before school starts. Students who cannot provide proof of required immunizations will not be allowed to attend school or ride the bus on the first day of classes. Please submit immunization updates to the school office.
