***Parents please keep the front office and Clinic informed with up-to-date contact information for you and all emergency contacts***

Medications for headaches, upset stomach or other ailments must be provided by parents/guardians of the student.  All medications to be administered must meet the following conditions: 

  • A Dispersion of Medication Form must be filled out and signed by the student’s responsible party at the time that the medication is brought to school. 

  • Medication must be in the original container. 

  • Medication container must be labeled correctly with: Child’s name, medication name, strength, route, dosage, specific time for medication to be administered, directions, frequency, and expiration date. 

  • Medications are received and stored under locked conditions in the Clinic. 

  • Please check the expiration date on all medications/prescription labels. 

  • When it is necessary for a student to keep medications with them at all times (i.e. Epi-pens or Inhalers), a physician’s order MUST be obtained specifically stating student may carry medication.

  • It is the responsibility of the student to report to the clinic at the appropriate time to take regularly scheduled medications. 

The law requires all students entering into Florida public schools have a physical that is less than one year old and current immunizations.  

  • Since all state laws are different regarding immunizations the student may be required to take additional vaccinations to stay IN school.  

  • Students may get immunizations at the Okaloosa County Health Department or your private doctor.

  • Immunizations required for school entry are FREE at the Health Department.

  • Immunization hours at the FWB and Crestview Health Department vary. You may contact the FWB office at 833-9240.


  • Vomiting/Diarrhea: may return 24 hours after symptoms are gone.

  • Pinkeye/ eye infections with discharge: may return when eyes are clear or have been treated with antibiotics for 24 hours. 

  • Fever (100.0F & over): student should be fever free without being medicated for 24 hours before returning to school.

  • Head Lice: after hair has been treated, student must be checked by clinic staff and found to be free of ALL lice and/or live nits.

  • Undiagnosed Rash: Any student with a rash of unknown origin, should be picked up by parent/guardian and advised to seek medical clearance to return to school.


  • We ask that all kindergarten and first graders bring an extra set of clothes with them to school.

  • If an accident happens and the student does not have a set of clothing to change into then you will be called and required to bring them a change of clothes.

A Health Care Technician is provided in every public school to care for children, staff, and support parents in their efforts to raise educated and healthy children
