Annual Health Information Request
Each year, we ask families to complete a Confidential Health Information Form. The form helps us learn about your child’s allergies and medical needs.
Please give a completed form to our school’s main office. A nurse will follow up with you if she has questions.
Medications at School
If your child has a life-threatening condition or requires medication at school, please visit our medications page for more detailed information.
Unfortunately, head lice in school-aged children is a common occurrence throughout the country. Our school district is no exception. There are some simple steps that you can take at home to drastically reduce the number of cases seen in our district each year. Control of head lice depends on prompt identification and treatment. Your help in spending 5 minutes each week inspecting your child for the presence of head lice would make a huge difference.
The following procedure is recommended for inspecting your child for head lice:
- Under a bright light, begin looking at your child’s scalp. Start with the areas just above the back of the neck and behind the ears.
- Part the hair into small sections and look closely for head lice or nits (eggs). Head lice are about the size of a sesame seed. Nits are gray or whitish and are firmly attached to the hair shaft near the scalp.
- If you find live lice on your child’s head, start treatment as soon as possible. Your local pharmacist or health care provider can recommend appropriate treatment options. You will need to treat your child’s scalp and cleanse the home to prevent reoccurrence.
- Notify the office staff at your child’s school. Your child can return to school the day after treatment provided there are no remaining live lice. This information will be kept confidential. If your child is found to have head lice, it is a good idea to check all family members daily for lice for 2-4 weeks.
If you have further questions, please contact your school’s nurse. More information can be found on the Center for Disease Control website at http://www.cdc.gov/lice/
