   Immunization Requirements for 2019-2020

      Students entering the 7th Grade for the 2019-20 school year are required to have the Tdap and the MCV4 (Meningococcal) vaccines. Proof of administration must be on file, in the student's health folder, at the start of the new school year. Documentation should be in the form of a recent immunization record from your child's pediatrician or administering facility. If your child receives these vaccines prior to the end of the current school year, or if they have already received them, you may send that information to the school office so that it can be recorded. Immunization records can also be faxed to the school, 740-886-5125.

 

     Students entering the 12th Grade for the 2019-20 school year are required to show proof they have received the MCV4 (meningococcal) vaccine. If the MCV4 was given prior to the age of 16, a 2nd dose is required prior to the start of the 12th grade. Documentation should be in the form of a recent immunization record from your child's pediatrician or administering facility. If your child receives these vaccines prior to the end of the current school year, or if they have already received them, you may send that information to the school office so that it can be recorded. Immunization records can also be faxed to the school, 740-886-6738.

 

    Any questions or concerns about these immunizations should be discussed with your physician or healthcare provider. 

Head Lice

Head lice are a common community issue and children can get them anytime they are in close contact with others- for example, during play at home or school, slumber parties, sports activities, or camp. It is important to remember that Head lice are not a health hazard or a sign or poor hygiene. Please help us in preventing the spread of this communicable condition by checking your child(ren) on a regular basis. Lice infestation is much easier to treat if it is caught early.

 

  

MEDICATIONS

When possible, medications should be given to students at home. Medication may be administered during school hours, if necessary. Please contact if me your child will require medication during the school day so that I may provide you with a medication release form. This form must be completed and signed by a physician before I can administer the medicine here at school.   Over the counter medications such at Tylenol or Ibuprofen also require parent and doctor consent. The same form will need to be  completed and brought to school with the medication to be stored in the nurse's office. Remember students should not keep medications in their cubbies,  lockers or book bags.

Medication MUST be in the original, labeled container.  Ask the Pharmacist for a second bottle, with the label, for school use. Any changes in medication or dosage will require a new written order from the doctor.

Medication Release forms MUST be renewed each school year.
