EMERGENCY CARD FOR NURSE’S OFFICE
- This form is printed on white cardstock and sent home at the beginning of every school year. Parent/Guardian must complete both sides of the card every year. Prompt return of the completed card is required because the information provided by the parent/guardian is used to direct student care at school.
- This form is a separate form from any sent by the Main office or teacher, and asks for medical information about your child.
MEDICATIONS DURING THE SCHOOL DAY
(ALL Prescription & Non-prescription Medications)
- ALL medications that students take during the school day MUST be kept in the Nurse’s office. It is against FSMA’s policy to allow students to have medications in their backpacks or on their person while at school or at any FSMA school-related activities.
- Prescription medications must be delivered to the Nurse in their original box or container with pharmacy label attached.
- Non-prescription/over-the-counter medications that must be given during the school day must be delivered to the Nurse in their original container with the student’s name labeled on the container.
- Be sure that the medication is not going to expire during the school year, and if it will, make note of the date so that you can provide a refill when it is needed, before the expiration.
- A Medication Permission Form must be completed for EACH medication that is sent to school. No medication will be given until the appropriate completed paperwork is received.
- All controlled substances must be handed directly to one of the Nurses by an adult over the age of 18 years old. Students may not bring controlled substances in to school. A good rule of thumb is, if you have to present an ID when you pick it up from the pharmacy, it must be delivered to school by an adult.
