Student Medical InformationIllnesses at School
School nurses help staff members meet the health needs of students throughout the county. Ill children are removed from classrooms and isolated until a parent or guardian is notified, or the child is returned home. Following an absence, a student must bring an explanatory note from a parent/guardian. Medication can ONLY be given if the medicine is in its original container with appropriate labeling, and the school has a signed parent permission for the administration of prescribed medication form from the parent revealing that it is necessary to administer medication as prescribed during school hours.Immunization Requirements
