MEDICINE AT SCHOOL

A student who must take prescription (or nonprescription) medicine during the school day must bring a written request from his or her parent and the medicine, in its original container, to the principal's office. Forms for medication administration are available in the principal's office or may be downloaded from the forms link on the left. A physician's signature is required for administration of medications for longer than 15 days. The principal or the designee will give the medicine at the proper times. Under certain circumstances, students may be allowed to carry asthma medication on their person. Requests to allow students to maintain possession of asthma medication should be referred to the school nurse. An asthma action plan is also available through the forms menu for your convenience.


SCREENINGS

Students in grades PK, K, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 are screened annually for vision, hearing and acanthosis nigricans.  Students new to the district with no previous screening results will also be screened.  Vision, hearing and acanthosis nigricans screenings are usually performed in the first part of October.  Spinal screenings for students in grades 6 and 9 are generally performed in January.  Please do not hesitate to call the school nurse at 979-249-3200 if you have any concerns about your child.  Screenings can be performed on an as needed basis as concerns arise.
