XII.b.Absences from School/Medications/Doctors Notes
Students returning to school must, by law, bring written excuses for each absence and/or late arrival even if you have called the nurse to report the absence. Please make sure emergency information, including phone numbers and who to contact in case of an emergency, is on file and kept up to date in our health office. In the case of illness or injury, the school nurse will care for a student temporarily. When the situation is serious, you will be notified and 911 will be called.
All medication including over the counter drugs and cough drops is administered by the school nurse and must have the prescription label on it with a note from the doctor regarding dosage and time to be given. An adult must transport the medication to school. Please do not send your child with the prescription or over the counter medicines. He/she cannot self-medicate.
