Medications at School
According to Kansas State Statutes, children who have medications to take at school need to have them kept in the Nurse’s office and not with the child. Especially in elementary, medications are to be kept in a locked cabinet at all times for the safety of your child and other children at the school. Children lose track of time and are prone to wanting to use their medications when they feel the need, rather than the proper times. I do realize that some parents send medications to the health room via their children. I would appreciate a call so that I know they are on the way and can take them from your child before school starts. Thank you for your help in this matter.
It is recommended that children with the following symptoms stay home for 24 hours after these symptoms are resolved, unless a note from the family physician states that the student can attend school. Children should be fever-free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of fever reducing medication before returning to school.
- fever at or above 100F
- sore throat
- red, draining eyes
- thick, green nasal discharge
- ear drainage
Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions or concerns about your child/children as I have a very open door policy and enjoy meeting parents as well. Looking forward to a great year!!!
