Health Forms 
Now On-line!
Medication at School
If a medication must be given during the school day, please follow these important procedures:
A written doctor's order and parent permission are required for ALL medication.  This includes all types of prescription treatments, over the counter medicines, and herbal remedies. A Medication Permission Form can be obtained from the nurse or you may download now by Clicking Here.
A responsible adult must bring medications to school and they must be in their original container. 
Once medications are delivered to school, they are safely stored in the nurse's office and administered by the nurse as prescribed.
At the end of the school year, medication must be picked up by a parent or guardian. Orders and forms do not roll over into the next school year. They must be updated and re-submitted for each school year. Medication left in the nurse office after the last school day will be discarded.
Emergency Action Plans
If your child will keep an emergency medication at school (for example, an Epi-pen or inhaler), please collaborate with your doctor to complete an Emergency Action Plan.  You may download and use the forms below:
Or your child's physician may provide one for you.
Emergency medications and Emergency Action Plans will be sent on field trips and will be safely stored by a teacher or nurse. 
Friendly Reminders

Warm weather is finally here and we want our students to stay safe while having fun in the sun!

You might be tempted to just let your child wear her flip flops so you don't have to battle about it. This might not be a safe choice! At this age, all of our school activities require shoes with support and protection. Please have your child wear sneakers or closed toe shoes on school days.


2018 Flip "Flops"

Remember to apply sunscreen to your child every day before school. 
Physical Exams
Summer is the perfect time to make sure your child is up-to-date with all recommended immunizations! Many kids will need an updated physical before they can go to camp, back to school, or participate in sports.
Cough Drops in School
Cough drops brought to school MUST be in the ORIGINAL container with a note from the parent, and be brought to the nurse on arrival.
For K-2 students, they will be kept in the nurse's office, and be used there, under supervision of the school nurse.
Cough syrups, dissolving strips, lollipops, and Vitamin C drops are NOT to be sent to school with students. Thank you for your cooperation.
