Either a private physician or school physician conducts physical examinations for students in Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten, and grades 6, and 11. Dental examinations are conducted by either a private dentist or school dentist in grades Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten, and grades 3 and 7. Students in grades 6 and 7 are screened yearly for scoliosis.
Administering Medication During School Hours
1. The medication permission form must be completed by the physician and the parent and returned to the health office before any medication/treatment is administered.
2. All medication to be given during school hours must be delivered directly to the health office.
3. All medication must be brought to school in the original pharmaceutically dispensed and properly labeled
4. All medication must be administered through the health office. No medication/treatment will be administered unless these procedures are followed.
It is recommended that all students be covered by accident insurance. A school accident insurance policy is available to students for a nominal fee. These forms are distributed to all students at the beginning of each school year. Insurance forms can also be obtained through the principal’s office. If a student does not purchase the district accident policy, he/she will be held liable for any injuries occurring on school property.
