STUDENT HEALTH AND EMERGENCY CONTACTS

***Parents please keep the front office and Clinic informed with up-to-date contact information for you and all emergency contacts.

MEDICATIONS
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. 

IMMUNIZATIONS
The law requires all students entering into Florida public schools have a physical that is less than one year old and current immunizations.  Since all state laws are different regarding immunizations the student may be required to take additional vaccinations to stay IN school.   Students may get immunizations at the Okaloosa County Health Department or your private doctor. Immunizations required for school entry are FREE at the Health Department. If you have any questions, please contact the Health Care Technician. Immunization hours at the FWB and Crestview Health Department vary. You may contact the FWB office at 833-9240.

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. 

A Health Care Technician is provided in every public school to care for children, staff, and support parents in their efforts to raise educated and healthy children

Please note:  Florida has a very broad public records law.  Most written communications to or from state officials regarding state business are public records available to the public and media upon request.  Your e-mail communications may therefore be subject to public disclosure.
