First aid, health records, P.E. medical excuses, and all matters pertaining to student health are handled in the Health Office.
Any student with a doctor’s excuse prohibiting participation in physical education must present the excuse to the Health Services Office. Parent’s/guardian’s notes concerning an excuse for physical education for a day must also be presented to the Health Services Office.
Parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for administering medication to their children. Parent(s)/guardian(s) may authorize their student to self-administer a medication according to the District’s procedures for student self-administration of medication.
Medication Procedure: Parents will notify and provide medication in the original prescription container, which includes dosage and other instructions for the Health Services Office. Students will report to the office at the designated time, log in to the Health Services Office, and take their medication per the instructions, and then return to class.
All prescription medication, other than inhalers and other lifesaving devices, will be secured in the Health Services Office. For further clarification, contact the Health Service Office.
Nothing in this policy shall prohibit any school employee from providing emergency assistance to students, including administering medication.
