When to keep your child at home:
Should the need arise to treat your child in the clinic, it is imperative that parents complete a Clinic Card at the beginning of school. It must include current address and phone number, medical conditions, emergency numbers, and a valid parent signature. If changes occur during the year, parents should notify the Clinic. A Clinic Card must be on file before students are allowed to check out.
Over The Counter Medications
Administering over the counter medications at school is discouraged. Students may not have over the counter medications in their possession and may not share medications of any kind with fellow students.
If a student must have an over the counter medication in order to attend school, the parent/guardian must furnish a written request for the school to supervise the administration of the medication. This request must include the student’s name, the name of the medication, dose and time to be administered. Medication must be kept in the clinic in the original container. If the medication is to be administered for more than one day, a Medication Request Form must be completed.
Taking medications during school hours is discouraged. Parents are asked to arrange medication schedules so that it is not necessary for medication to be taken at school. If the treating physician prescribes the administration of medication at school, the parent must complete the Administration of Medication Request and return it to the school. The information on the form must be the same as that on the prescription container label. Norcross ES will not accept medication sent to school in a baggie or any container other than the container provided by the pharmacy. If medications must be given over a period of time, the Administration of Medication Request must be updated yearly. Students may not have prescription medications in their possession or share these medications with others.
A student who has asthma may possess, and is permitted to self-administer, asthma medication prescribed for him/her by their physician. The student will be allowed to self-administer asthma medication while at school, at a school-sponsored activity, while under the supervision of school personnel, or during, before, or after school care on school operated the property. Contact clinic personnel in order to obtain the forms required for self-administration of asthma medication.
Clothes For Clinic
The Clinic is very low on donated clothes for accidents during the school day. We accept blue jeans, long and short sleeve shirts, underwear, socks, and belts. Items must be thoroughly cleaned and have working buttons and zippers. No holes, but a little wear and tear is fine.
