​Students in Kindergarten require a physical exam, vision exam, and dental exam.

Students in 2nd grade and 6th grade require a dental exam.  6th graders also require a physical exam.

Please turn in these forms from the doctor's office to the school nurse as soon as possible.  Thank you!

For 5th grade and 8th grade parents:  It is not too early to schedule your student's 6th or 9th grade physical!  Talk to your child's doctor to get their physical scheduled!

​If your child is sick, please keep them home from school! 

Children with fevers (100.0 and over) must stay home from school until the fever is gone for one day without help from Tylenol or Ibuprofen/Motrin.  This may take a few days!


 

Medications at School:

* Tylenol and Ibuprofen can be given at                                                school with parent consent.  This form was                                                     filled out when you registered your student.

*Any other medications (including cough                                        drops) cannot be given at school without a                                                  form filled out by your student's doctor and                                              signed by the parent.

*Students who "self-carry" their inhalers must                                               also have a form filled out by their doctor                                                  giving them permission to do so.

If you have any questions, please ask!

What is the flu?

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs.

Signs and Symptoms:

* Fever or feeling feverish/chills

* Cough

* Sore throat

* Runny or stuffy nose

* Muscle or body aches

* Headaches

* Fatigue (very tired)

How to Prevent the Flu:

* Wash your hands often, especially before and after eating, after using the bathroom, after interacting with others, and if your hands become dirty.

* Cough and sneeze into your arm/elbow, never into your hands.

* Make sure you drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest!

* Dress for the weather.  If it is cold, wear a coat, hat, scarf, and gloves.

* If you choose to get a flu vaccine, this will also help lower your chances of getting the flu.
