RE: Parent Medication Letter
If your student has or will receive medication during their school day please make note, all medications (prescription and non-prescription) MUST be picked up by a parent, guardian or parent-designated adult, by the last full day of instruction, and/or if the child transfers to another school. The school is unable to properly store medications over the summer. Medications that remain in the school clinic will be disposed of after dismissal, on the last full instructional day of school, May 31, 2019.
Should you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.

The following are some guidelines you may use when deciding whether to keep your child home or to send them to school. The scool staff and school nurse will use these guidelines when determining whether your child should be sent home from school. If you are unsure, call our child's healthcare provider.
Fever - Your child should be fever free (100 or higher) for a full 24 hours, without fever reducing medication, before returning to school.
Vomiting - Your child should be free from vomiting episodes for a full 24 hours prior to returning to school.
Diarrhea - Your child should be free from diarrheal episodes for a full 24 hours prior to returning to school.
For a full list of guidelines see the Send Home-Stay Home Guidelines.
Head Lice - When your child returns to school after treatment, please bring either the receipt for the lice treatment product OR the product label that was used on his/her hair. School personnel will inspect your child’s hair to confirm that there has been improvement in the condition, from when the infestation was initially discovered.
Students are permitted 2 days (verified) to treat a case of lice. After 2 days, all other days out of school will be considered unexcused absences. See the Lice Letter to Parents
