The clinic is available for illnesses or injuries that occur DURING school hours. If a student is too ill to remain at school, a parent /guardian will be contacted to pick up the child. The clinic must get parent/guardian permission before releasing any student to anyone other than the parent/guardian, UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY.
Health Management Plan
If a student has a current medical condition, a completed health management plan (available at the clinic) should be on file in the clinic. These forms help provide the medical information needed to provide the best care for your child at school and they must be updated every year.
MedicinesAdministering over-the-counter and prescribed medication at school is discouraged. Parents should check with their physicians regarding the need for medication to be administered during school hours, after school, and at bedtime. There should be no need to send medication that needs to be given only once or twice daily. If a student needs to take prescribed or over-the-counter medications during the school day, a parent /guardian must complete an Administration of Medication Request Form (available at the clinic) and return it with the prescribed labeled medicine or over-the-counter medication.The Clinic Does Not Provide Tylenol, Advil, Antacids, Cold Medication, orAny Other Type of Medication for Students.
** All medication must remain in the clinic with the exception of an inhaler or Epi-Pen which requires a Doctor's signature along with the Administration of Medication Request Form (available at the clinic) signed by the parent.
**All medication must be in the original container. Medication in baggies will not be administered. All medication must be picked up at the end of the year by a parent/guardian or it will be disposed of by the school.

Epinephrine (Epi-Pen) is a cardiac drug and must be stored in the clinic.

Additional documentation for students requiring an Epi-Pen includes an Allergy Emergency Plan and a Hypodermic Injection Consent, signed by a parent /guardian (forms available in the clinic).
