Medication Guidelines

If possible, all medications should be given by the parent at home. If this is not possible, it will be done in accordance to the following:

1.     “Medications” shall include all medications: those prescribed by a physician and any non-prescribed (over the counter) drugs, preparations and/or remedies.

2.     A medication form that has been completed by both physician and parent/guardian must be on file prior to administration of any medication. A new form is required at the beginning of each school year. (per the O.R.C. 3313.713)

3.     Medications must be brought to school by the parent/guardian. The medication must be received in the original container in which it was dispensed by the prescribing health care provider or licensed pharmacist. Over the counter medication must be in the original container.

4.     It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep an adequate supply of medication at school.

5.     Students may carry an inhaler with them if ordered by a physician. A properly completed school medication form for the inhaler is required to be on file with the school nurse. Students should report the use of the inhaler to the nearest school employee and be referred to the school nurse.

6.     Medications are to be picked up by the parent/guardian at the end of the school year. Medications that are not picked up by the last day of school will be disposed of.

HEAD LICE GUIDELINES

All cases of head lice must be reported to the school nurse.

Children who have had head lice MUST be examined by the school nurse or nurse assistant (by appointment) in order to be readmitted to school.

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CARE FOR A CHILD WITH HEAD LICE:

  1. Your child’s hair should be treated with a special anti-lice shampoo. You may use one of several over the counter treatments or contact your physician to prescribe a treatment. Specific directions come with the anti-lice preparations.
  2. All family members should have their hair examined.
  3. All the nits (eggs) must be removed before a child may return to school. A fine #10 comb may be used for the removal of the nits and the remaining nits can be picked out by hand.
  4. All bedding, hats, hoods, sweaters, coats and any clothing that comes in contact with the hair should be washed soap and hot water and machine dried.
  5. Wash all combs and brushes with soap and hot water.
  6. Upholstered furniture and carpeting should be thoroughly vacuumed. In addition, a commercial spray is available.
