Student Health Information Form
A student health information form must be returned at the start of every school year. It is also required for new student enrollment. The form can be found on this website or at the school.
Missouri law requires that all students meet the immunization standards established by the Missouri Department of Health in order to attend school. Students in noncompliance with the immunization law will be excluded from school. In cases of exemptions from immunizations due to medical reactions, a physician statement must be on file with the school nurse. In cases where the student has had the chicken pox, a signed physician's note must be on file with the school nurse. In cases of exemptions from immunizations due to religious beliefs, a parent/guardian must sign the Department of Health Exemption From which will be kept in the student's health record. For current immunization requirements see below:
The school nurse is happy to assist students who need medication at school. Most medications, even if needed 3 times a day, can be given at home. In the event a student needs a long-term medication at school, a medication form must be completed and signed by the physician and parent/guardian. The medication must be in the original up-to-date container labeled by the pharmacy. The nurse may administer over-the-counter medication with a doctor's order and written permission from the parent/guardian. Medication forms are located at school or on this web site. The 1st dose of any medication will not be given at school. Any medications remaining at the end of the school year will be destroyed if not picked up by a parent or guardian.
If your child has been diagnosed with asthma and it requires an inhaler at school; they must have an asthma action plan and long-term medication form on file in the nurse's office. These forms are located in the nurse's office or on this web site. There is nebulizer machine available at school. We ask that you bring nebulizer medications in a labeled ziplock bag with the tubing.
If your student has been diagnosed with seizures and requires medication at school; they must have a long-term medication form and a seizure action plan on file in the nurse's office. These forms are located in the nurse's office or on this web site.
LIFE THREATENING ALLERGY
