Medication Administration Policy
Special Medical Issues
Ifyour child has any medical issues that we should be aware of, such as asthma, allergies (food, drugs, bees/wasps, environmental), seizures, diabetes, heart disease, etc., please, stop by the nurse's office.
If your child has asthma, please, bring an extra inhaler to the nurse's office to be available in the event of an asthma episode occurring during school hours. Also, have your physician complete an Asthma Action Plan for inclusion in your child's health folder. Plans may be printed here (see below)
If your child has a known allergy that requires the administration of Epinephrine for severe or life threatening symptoms (in most cases in the form of an Epi Pen), please provide the prescribed Epi Pen and a Allergy Action Plan, signed by the provider, and give to the school nurse at the beginning of the school year. Plans may be printed here (see anaphylaxis plan below).
Medications Taken at School
To ensure the well-being of every student at EHS, please, remember that all medications, including over-the-counter preparations, brought to school must be delivered by the parent to the nurse's office to be dispensed by the nurse. The medication must be in the original container and include a note with the name of the medication, the time it is to be administered, and the reason it is being given.
**For safety concerns, please, do not have students bring medications to school.
