 For forms required for medical issues and permission for your child to receive medication throughout the school year, please click on FORMS on the left sidebar. For prescription medications the medication form must be signed by a physician. Remember, your child can NOT bring medications/cough drops from home to give the nurse.

Students should remain home for the following reasons:

For a temperature greater than 100 degrees. Children should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school and not taking fever reducing medication to control symptoms.

If diagnosed with a strep infection. Students need to be on an antibiotic for a minimum of 24 hours, fever free, and feeling well before returning to school.

If your child has vomited or had persistent diarrhea during the night or in the morning before school.

If your child has a heavy, moist productive cough, chest congestion, or discolored nasal drainage.

If your child has pinkeye (conjunctivitis). Students need to have completed 24 hours of medication, and have no visible redness or discharge before returning to school.

Students should be kept home until they have been symptom free for 24 hours. This is important for your child’s health and the health of his/her classmates. Please continue to remind your child of the importance of frequent hand washing, healthy eating, and proper use and disposal of tissues during this cold and flu season. When notifying the school of your child’s absence, please give us the reason for the absence and send a note with them when they return.

​Always check with the teacher to see if there are any food allergies in the class, before you bring food into the classroom. Remember that food allergies are serious and can be life threatening. Treats can be non-food items such as pencils, markers, stickers, etc. ​Also consider any food or non-food item that could be a choking hazard.
