IMPORTANT:

Parents, please keep your kids home from school if they are not feeling well. Students are excluded from school with a fever of 100 and a cough and/or sore throat until they are fever free without fever reducing medication for 24 hours. We are trying to prevent the spread of communicable disease in school.

Handwashing is the best way to help prevent the spread of germs. Please have a discussion with your kids and emphasize the importance of handwashing during the school day.

 


A NOTE ON MEDICATION POLICY - It is likely that during this school year, your child will have a medication prescribed for the treatment of a health issue. The general policy we recommend: children receive medication at home whenever possible. In the event that your child needs to receive medication at school, please note the following key points:

  * All medications, including over the counter meds require a Physician’s written authorization (Authorization to Administer  Medication, form #525-13).  This form may be downloaded from the MCPS web site or be picked up from the health room.

  * Prescription medications must be provided in a container with The pharmacist's label attached, the name of the child

And the dosage printed on the label.

  * For the safety of your student, as well as other students at school, All medications must be delivered to the school by a parent, guardian or designated adult.

  *Students may "self carry" emergency medications such as Epi-pens and inhalers with a physicians order and approval by the School Community Health Nurse.  The written order will be kept on file in the health room 

Under no circumstances, may students self carry or self administer other medications in the school setting (prescription or over the counter) unless the above written orders are on file in the health room.
                     
* Under no circumstances will the school administer medications or allow children to take medication that does not follow the aforementioned rules.

  As always please feel free to contact the health room with any questions or concerns.
