If a prescription or over-the-counter medication is necessary during the school day, a parent should bring the medicine to school in a pharmacy labeled bottle. A school medical form must be completed and given to the school official responsible for administering the medication.
A Health Clinic is provided for students at our school by Registered Nurses from the Irwin County Health Department.
Visual and hearing screening for students are available at the request of the parents.
If your child has a special documented health need or problem, this should be communicated to the teacher and school nurse. (This information is kept confidential.) In cases that warrant specific precautions or emergency procedures, an individual protocol will be developed by a team consisting of the nurse, RTI, teachers, and parents/guardians.
