    Medication at school?

    Will your child be taking any medicine at school?

    An Authorization to Administer Medications at School form must be completed for each medication your student needs, including all prescription, nonprescription or over the counter remedies.

    Please be sure the medication authorization form is complete with both your signature and the signature of a licensed healthcare provider. A medication authorization form is required for students to self-carry and self-administer any medications at school.

    Will you child eat breakfast/lunch in school? Do they have a special diet? Allergies?

    Please fill out the diet prescription form for more info. Or please feel free to stop by to our main office to grab a copy.


    Due to shortage of Epipens and epinephrine, we will accept Epipens (Mylan brands) that are close to expiring and are expired up to 4 months after the expiration dates for the Epipen 0.3 mg injector. This however does not apply for Epipen Jr, according to the manufacture. If you would like to learn more about Epipen Mylan brand, please follow this link.

    When to keep your child at home?

    Please keep your child at home for...

    • Fever of 100 degrees and greater. Stay home until fever-free for 24 hours without medication.
    • Sore throat, especially with fever or swollen glands in the neck. Stay home for 24 hours after receiving appropriate treatment.
    • Vomiting and/or diarrhea two or more times in 24 hours. Stay home for 24 hours after last vomiting or diarrhea.
