One of the integral functions of the school nurse is to keep an updated health record for each student. There are three health forms that need to be completed and returned to the school by the first day, they are listed below. If your child’s health record does not contain these three completed forms he/she may not be able to begin school. Please send the following three forms to the nurse’s office by August 19, 2016.
Aside from the over-the-counter medications that are clearly stated on the form, no medication will be administered without a specific doctor’s order. If a student needs medication during school hours, either on a regular schedule or as needed, he/she will need a doctor’s order for each medication. (Forms are located on our website.) This permission includes short-term medication administration, such as antibiotics. Any prescription medication that is necessary during the school day should be delivered to the nurse with an order from the doctor. A prescribed inhaler is the only medication a student may carry.
If you have any health concerns or questions please feel free to contact the nurse’s office,
(978) 682-9391 X114 / firstname.lastname@example.org
