Student Health & Emergency Contacts

It is imperative that parents fill out an Emergency Contact Card at the beginning of the year. One is sent home with every student at the beginning of the year. This provides school officials with valuable information regarding a student’s physical and academic special needs. To ensure the safety of all of our students please turn these in as soon as possible.



Medications for headaches, upset stomach or other ailments must be provided by parents/guardians of the student. All medications to be administered must meet the following conditions:

  • An Administration of Medication in the School Permission form must be filled out and signed by the responsible party for the student. This form may be obtained from the Health Care Technician or from the front office and must be turned in to the Health Care Technician at the time that the medication is brought to school.
  • All Medication is to be in the original container or a pharmacy labeled container. They must have the name of the student, name of the drug, dosage and administration times clearly indicated on the label. Medications are received and stored under locked conditions in the Clinic. Please check the expiration date on all medications.
  • When it is necessary for a student to keep medications with them at all times, (i.e. inhalers, or Epipens) physician’s order stating such must be obtained and kept with the Administration of Medications In the Schools form in the Health Care Technician's office. It is the responsibility of the student to report to the clinic at the appropriate time to take regularly scheduled medications.

Help Us to Help Your Child

We all know that accidents happen. We ask that all kindergarten and first graders bring an extra set of clothes with them to school. If an accident happens and the student does not have a set of clothing to change into you will be called and required to bring them a change. Paying attention to a few extra details will go a long way in helping you and your child adjust to another year filled with new challenges and new experiences.
