It is imperative that parents fill out an Emergency Contact Card at the beginning of each school year. One is sent home with every student at the beginning of the school year. This provides our school officials with valuable information regarding a student’s physical and academic special needs, as well as information regarding who to contact in an emergency situation. Contact Cards are provided in the Nurse Clinic and should be turned in as soon as possible to ensure the safety of all the students.
All medication including insulin pens, inhalers, cough drops, over the counters, etc. must be brought to the clinic by a parent or legal guardian.
All medications must be brought in the original container (prescription medications must have a current pharmacy label) and parents must fill out a medication form provided in the clinic. MIS 5138
