When Children Should Not Be in School
A child who has a temperature of 100 or higher, has an undiagnosed rash, or experiences nausea, vomiting or diarrhea is excluded from school. Any child suspected of having an infectious disease/condition is also excluded and may not return to school until she/he has been symptom-free for 24 hours after being sent home or a physician provides a written statement that the child is not contagious. Some of the more commonly occurring infectious conditions in school-age children include pink eye, flu, chickenpox, and Fifth Disease. Children with signs of head lice or the eggs (nits) of the louse are also excluded until all eggs (nits) are removed.
Vision and Hearing Screenings
District nursing staff provides students with vision and hearing screenings for grades K, 2, 5, new students, or at parent or teacher request.
Medication at School
Any time your child requires medication at school, the medication must be kept in the nurse’s office to be given by school personnel. LEGALLY, the school requires:
- Medication MUST be in the ORIGINAL pharmacy bottle, labeled by the pharmacist.
- The parent MUST sign a consent form prior to medication being administered. The form is available in the school office, as well as on the IUSD web-site under Health Services (http://iusd.org/education_services/health_services/index.html).
- The physician MUST also sign the consent form prior to medication being administered. Medication will not be administered unless instructions are specific.
- Medication MUST be brought to school by a parent. At no time should medication arrive at school in a lunch box, backpack, baggie, etc.
These regulations apply to NON-PRESCRIPTION medications as well. Non-prescription drugs include aspirin, vitamins, cough syrup, cough drops, ointments, etc. The only exception would be if parent/guardian gives consent to provide first aid such as calamine lotion, eye wash, Vaseline, etc.
Please do not ask school personnel to administer medications supplied by you until the above-mentioned requirements have been met.
Please do not ask school personnel to supply your child with medication as no medications are supplied by the school.
Please do not send your child to school with medications of any kind.
