Immunizations and TB Screening
If you are planning on registering your student at our school, there are
two health related regulations that I ask you to familiarize yourself with:
Regulation 755-1: Immunization Requirements and Regulation 723-4: Tuberculosis Screening Requirement. Prior to starting school, your student will need documentation showing compliance with these regulations.
If your student is already enrolled and has received immunizations, please send a recent copy of their immunization record to the health clinic. This ensures all records are up to date and students are compliant with mandated immunization requirements.
Medication in School
Students are not permitted
to carry any medications on their person. A student may have medications in the clinic provided that they have the correct, completed forms on file. This includes both prescription medications and over the counter (OTC) medications.
, such as Tylenol, Advil etc., can be kept in the clinic for administration during the school day provided the completed paperwork is on file. OTC medications do not require the signature of physician on the form. Please be advised that I am only allowed to administer the dosage specified on the bottle unless otherwise ordered by a physician. If this is the case, please have your physician fill out the medication administration form. Some OTC medications are not appropriate for children under the age of 18. If you doctor would like these medications administered to your student during the school day, please have your physician fill out the medication administration form.
