All Prescription Medications, including inhalers and homeopathic drops, must be brought to the school by a parent and/or guardian with a “Medication Administration” form and in an original container.
All medications are administered per physician’s orders. Handwritten notes and/or verbal instructions will not be accepted as per Ohio Law. If you have any questions or concerns regarding medication administration during school, please contact Mrs. Disantis at 330-664-4990 or 330-730-2079.
Any over the counter medication given at school requires a signed parent permission form. Medications must be provided in original container (In the amount of 30 or less) labeled with your child’s name. No child is allowed to carry unauthorized medications, including cough drops, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen.
If a student carries an inhaler or epi-pen, a physician’s order is required indicated it is a prescribed medication and medical staff are able to assist in case of an emergency. We also require an additional epi-pen to be kept in the school clinic. Please be sure to check the expiration date.
If your child has diabetes, asthma, a bee sting allergy, severe food allergy, seizure disorder or other specific medication condition, contact the District Nurse to complete the required paperwork. This paperwork will help all school personnel prepare for your child’s health needs.
All students must be current with their immunizations. According to Ohio Revised Code, children who have not had the required immunizations cannot attend school.
Vision and hearing screenings will be completed for students in grades K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 9th. Vision only in 7th grade and hearing only for 11th. You will receive notification only if you student does not pass any part of the screening. This is a screening and should not replace a yearly visit to an optometrist for a complete eye exam.
