Health Information

MEDICATION POLICY

If your child is to take a prescribed medication, carry or use an inhaler at school, please remember these items need to be brought to school by the parent/guardian.  These items need to be in a prescription bottle or other prescription packaging with the name of the student, name of the drug, dosage, frequency of administration, route of administration, and have the physicians name on it.  The diagnosis/indication for the use of the medicine shall be provided.  A parent/guardian must request in writing that the School District comply with the authorized physicians request to give medication.  Please remember that this is the school policy and this policy will be followed with no exceptions.  Thank you for your cooperation and if you ever have questions, please call the school. 

 

SICK DAYS

Please remember if your child has a temperature of 100.0 degrees or above they will be sent home.  In addition, if your child wakes up with a temperature 100.0 degrees or above, they should be kept at home.  It is to their advantage to stay home fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.  If your child is vomiting, the same rule is followed.

This also helps in preventing the spread of infection between other classmates and on the bus.

 

IMMUNIZATIONS

Hello!!  I hope everyone is looking forward to summer break and enjoying time with your children at home.  


Here are a few important reminders regarding being ready for school next year.  


Please make sure your child is ready for school by getting their immunizations taken care of this summer.  If your child does receive their immunizations this summer, please have the Dr. fax them to the school at 1-573-485-2393 or mail them to the school.  Your child may also get their immunization at Pike County Health Department on Monday- Friday from

8 am to 4 pm.  If you have questions, please call them at (573) 324-2111.    


The school will need a copy of your child’s immunizations by August 1st to make sure they are up to date and ready for school.  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL TO HAND YOUR CHILD’S IMMUNIZATIONS IN.  


Students going into 8th grade will be required to have a Tdap and a Meningitis shot.  Students going into 12th grade will be required to have a Meningitis shot.  Please have your Dr. fax them to 1-573-485-2393 as soon as your student receives their shot or by August 1st for your student to be ready for school.  


Students who do not have the appropriate immunizations needed the first day of school will be sent home.  


HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!
