You will hear from me if your child will need any immunizations before they can start school according to Missouri State Laws. Occasionally your child may need an immunization during the school year, I will contact you ahead of time in this case so we can ensure your child does not miss any school.
If your child has a specific health concern, please be sure to let me know. I will be glad to work with you to make a plan to keep them healthy and ensure their success at school.
Specifically, if your child takes daily medication and will need to take that medication at school, please have medication to school ASAP. A parent/or guardian needs to bring the medication, not the student. A permission form will need to be filled out at that time. The medication needs to be in the original box, with a prescription label that has your child’s name on it. No over-the-counter medication will be administered without a note from your child’s doctor.
If your child has a current asthma diagnosis, I would like your child to have an inhaler in the school clinic. Inhalers, like any other medication must be in the original box and a permission form must be filled out. Additionally, it is helpful to have a copy of your child’s Asthma Treatment Plan from their physician so I can have a better idea of when your child may need their inhaler while at school
