Flu shot event Wednesday, November 17th


We are glad to be able to serve your family by offering free flu shots for students right here at our school on Wednesday, November 17th. Medical professionals do think this flu season may be a bad one. If you would like the convenience of safeguarding your child with a free flu shot, you just need to sign the consent form and send it back. We need those signed forms back by Wednesday, November 10th in order to make sure our Partners have enough supplies. A copy of the consent form was sent home with your student. Links for the consent form in Spanish and English are also provided below. 

If you have any questions, please call the school.  Thank you for your partnership.

Emergency Student Information Form
OCPS requires a new emergency student information form for all students every school year.  Please complete the form and return it to the school as soon as possible.  Please list multiple adults who can be contacted in case of an emergency.  If an early pick-up is needed, only those individuals listed on the form will be permitted to pick up your child from school.  Please inform the school of any changes or updates using this form. Click here for the form.

Medical Notes
If your child is absent from school and you have a medical excuse note, please give it to the attendance clerk.  If your child has a doctor’s note with special instructions (e.g., no gym/sports, must wear a brace, allowed to use crutches, etc.), please give it to the school nurse and she will notify the teachers.

Medication at School
The school nurse can administer prescription and over-the-counter medications during the school day, if needed.  The parent/guardian must bring the medication to the clinic in the original pharmacy bottle with the label attached.  If you would like to keep over-the-counter medication in the clinic (e.g., Tylenol, Midol, ibuprofen, etc.), the parent must bring in an unopened bottle.  Students may not bring medication to school or carry it in their backpacks. Please Stop by the clinic to fill out the medication packet along with the unopened medication.

**Please note: In accordance with OCPS policy, if students are found with medication or unauthorized inhalers, EpiPens, etc., the items will be taken and the parent/guardian will need to come to the school to pick up the items.

Students with Asthma and Inhalers
If your child has asthma, you can store an inhaler in the clinic.  If you would like your child to self-carry an inhaler in his/her backpack, you must complete the Self-carry form and have it signed by your family’s health care provider.  Students are not permitted to self-carry an inhaler without a completed form. Please stop by the clinic to fill out the asthma/inhaler packet and or self-carry form along with the unpen asthma inhaler.

Students with Severe Allergies and EpiPens
If your child has severe allergies and requires an epinephrine injector (e.g., EpiPen, Auvi-Q), you can store it in the clinic.  Students may also self-carry an injector in their backpack as long as the appropriate paperwork is completed.  Several forms must be completed by the parent/guardian and the health care provider.  Please make an appointment with your health care provider to have the forms completed and signed as soon as possible.

Students with Diabetes and Diabetes Testing Supplies
If your child is diabetic and needs to self-carry testing supplies and insulin, several forms are required from the health care provider.  Please make an appointment with the health care provider to obtain a current copy of the Diabetes Medical Management Plan and for the appropriate signatures on the Self-carry form.

**Please note: In accordance with OCPS policy, if students are found with medication, unauthorized inhalers, EpiPens, etc., the items will be taken and the parent/guardian will need to come to the school to pick up the items.

Lice
Medicated shampoo must be used, all nits removed before a child can return to school. Before returning to the classroom, the child must be checked by the clinic nurse or school designee. Please accompany your child to the school clinic when returning to school. The district policy states that students will only be excused up to 4 days when diagnosed with lice.

Other Medical Issues
If your child has other special medical needs, please contact the school nurse so we can discuss how to best meet those needs.

Thank You!
