Administering Medication During School Hours
The Mount Carmel Area School District recognizes that parents have the primary responsibility for the health of their children. Although the district strongly recommends that medication be given in the home we realize that the health of some children requires that they receive medication while in school. Parents should confer with the child’s physician to arrange medication time intervals to avoid school hours whenever possible, but if it absolutely unavoidable, a Medication During School Hours Form must be completed by the physician and parents.
Is My Child Too Sick to Attend School?
Certain health screenings are administered by the nurses offices during the school year. Click on the tabs for more information.
ALL students will receive letters with their BMI (Body Mass Index) results. This is determined by the student’s height and weight ONLY. It is only a screening, so if there is a concern with the results, the student should see his/her primary care physician.
All students will have vision screenings. Referral letters will be sent home for those who fail the screening. Again, this is ONLY a screening. Students who fail should see an Eye Care Specialist for proper evaluation.
Referral letters will be sent home for students who fail the screening.
Scoliosis is a lateral (toward the side) curvature in the normally straight vertical line of the spine. Referral letters will be sent home for students who fail the screening.
