Medications
All medications for students should be brought to the clinic by an adult and dispensed by the school nurse. Written permission must be on file for medication to be administered. All medication must be in the original container. The Medication Administration Forms that must accompany the medications are available below. Just print, fill out, sign, and return to school with the medication. English Spanish
 
Lice Policy
Students who have been sent home should receive prompt treatment for lice/nits and return to school the following day.  Any absences due to head lice/nits are unexcused.  When returning to school they must be brought in by an adult to the front office. They cannot ride the bus until cleared by the school nurse.  If a child is found lice/nit free he/she will be returned to their regular school day and be allowed to participate in all school activities including riding the bus. More Information About Lice.
 
Special Health Care Needs
If your child will be returning to school with any special health care needs, i.e. cast, crutches, special diet, newly diagnosed illness, blood sugar monitoring, nebulizer treatments, etc. please contact the school as soon as possible to discuss accommodations.  Medical action plans will be required for any student diagnosed with a chronic or on-going medical diagnosis.
 
Accidents
All accidents will be reported to the nurse in writing on the Student Injury Report form. This form must be completed on the day of the accident. The report must list the name of the student, how the accident occurred, names of witnesses, and include the signature of the supervising adult. It is the responsibility of the teacher to be sure parent contact is made.
 
Immunization, Eye, Ear, and Dental Records
According to state law, all students enrolled in Georgia Schools, regardless of grade level, need to show evidence of having had the proper immunizations as well as eye, ear, and dental examinations. The school must have complete records or the child can be withdrawn from school. The examinations must have been completed within the previous 12 months. These certificates (3231, 3300) must be kept on file at the local school level. Refer any questions to the school nurse.
 
​Too sick for school?
Early in the morning it is often difficult to make a decision about whether or not your child is sick enough to stay home from school.  With minor symptoms you often cannot tell whether he/she is going to get better or worse during the course of the day.
 
The main reasons for keeping your child home are:
If he/she has had a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
If he/she has been on antibiotics for less than 24 hours
If he/she is too sick to be comfortable at school.
If he/she might spread a contagious disease to other children.
Remember to always make sure that the school knows how to reach you during the day, and that there is a back-up plan and phone number on file if we cannot reach you. Sick children need to be picked up in a timely manner. If we cannot contact you or you do not pick up your child in a reasonable amount of time, an appropriate agency will be contacted.
Parents will be called & students sent home with: lice/nits, temp. of 100.4 or greater, vomiting, diarrhea, un-diagnosed rash, persistent pain, frequent cough, and/or other as determined by Nurse.
